 Pedro is correct that the order isn't quite right and that the sys 
 objects should be added at the end.
 The resolution isn't "link resolution".  Libc is built manually in 
 libc/ by traversing the SUBLIB list and using ar to 
 deconstruct each SUBLIB into its .o files which it places in a temporary 
 directory.  Once complete, it then rebuilds the library from all the .o 
 files in the temporary directory.  The last library to add its .o files 
 For linux, newlib gets the shared libc library right because it uses 
 special awk files to build the library and the last 3 set of objects 
 added are:
 machine objects
 sys objects
 sys/machine objects
 I will fix this.

Yes, that's what I meant.
Thanks, it works now.
