Title: .a file order in kitsh build is critical
Status: Open Type: Code Defect
Severity: Critical Priority: Immediate
Subsystem: Tcl Resolution: Open

kitsh compilation/linkage step is critically dependent upon the order of .a files - specifically, libtclstub86.a *must* appear after libtcldde14.a else the symbols aren't found.

The fix is buildsrc/kitsh-0.0/ L7-8:
$(CC) $(CPPFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) -o kit -Wl,--start-group $(OBJS) $(EXTRA_OBJS) $(EXTRA_VFS_OBJS) $(ARCHS) -Wl,--end-group $(LDFLAGS) $(LIBS) $(LDFLAGS_ADD)

Adding those -Wl lines will ensure that the .a files are exhaustively searched to resolve all symbols.

The ddl .a perhaps should not be present in this step at all, which might obviate this problem.
