The "-no-undefined" option is not actually Win32 specific. IBM's AIX has build configurations which benefit from it.

Also, "-no-undefined" does not indicate if the library has undefined symbols (many DLLs have undefined symbols). It indicates that the build configuration has agreed to supply any additional dependency libraries if there otherwise would be undefined symbols.
