Yes, Sun c99 compiler does include this automatically.

I do agree that this could be considered a bug in gcc.

Passing the object file to the linker multiple times (with the Sun linker) 
generates a warning, but links successfully.  I tried this through both 
the Sun compiler driver and gcc.

Another way to approach this is to check execution of a small c99 test 
program without adding the object file, then add it only if necessary.
