Well, I guess the GO32V2 RTL comes in a smart-linked version, too, as
there are *.a files in the RTL directory. So there are *.o (object
files, not smart) and *.a (archives of object files, smart) besides the
*.ppu files. And I don't get any other files when compiling the RTL
myself. So how do I tell the compiler to link against the *.a files
instead of *.o files? The -CX switch is only for linking units themself
smartly (to create *.a instead of *.o files), AFAIK.
