Last time I tried it without 'weak' I got linking conflict.

It strongly depends upon linker script. E.g. you can specifiy
that particular set of libs to consitute group, then linker will search
through these libraries repetively trying to resolve as many references as
possible. Otherwise it is sequential process.
And you can always make a small experiment in order to find what is linker
