That is likely the cause error. This comes from a rather hacky
implementation of a linker inside KLEE.

I've mentioned this before that but this is something I'd like to
remove from KLEE. I think that **all** linking (and optimization)
should be done outside of KLEE using other tools because this would
simplify KLEE's implementation and would be far cleaner.

However we have to live with the horrible hacks that exist right now.
To help you debug linking if you build KLEE as a debug build you can
pass `-debug-only=klee_linker` to KLEE and that should dump a bunch
more output. You can find the relevant code in

I don't think "dynamically linked" makes any sense here. You just have
LLVM bitcode.
There is no "static" or "dynamic" here.
