I believe this to be possible on all platforms, but not always with
flags to the linker.

When creating static libraries using `ar', you can always add object
files one by one (or many by many).

When creating shared libraries, you can link a couple at a time into
single object files, using `-r', then do a final link step to create a
shared library.

This has been an idea in my to-do list for a while.  I promise to
smile *very big* if I could remove this from it :-) :-)
