the primary recourse is to complain to the vendor to fix their garbage.
if you have the sources, you can either
- build all of them as a single library or
- split them sanely into more libraries
in a rather easy way.
if you don't have the sources, you can still use either solution by
repacking the objects (as part of the project build or outside), which
is what you suggested yourself iiuc.
for a problem that shouldn't exist in the first place, a hard and hacky
"solution" is just the right treatment.
