I never thought about the linker changes to FPC and am probably using the
internal one. I know in the past I had been able to compile / link
libraries created with MinGW GCC on Windows. Parts of the problem also
include determining which other static dependencies to link IN ADDITION to
the order of the linking. Yes, the order makes a big difference.
Unfortunately, many years ago (around 10) I lost or overwrote the bits of
code I was using for static linking on Windows (using the correct linklib

I will try to recreate it again, using your suggestion of falling back to
the external linker. If it works I'll send you a part of the reward. That
offer also stands for anyone else that can offer helpful advice.
