So you're defining a weak symbol S1 with name "foo" in your lib.
In your program that uses the lib you define S2, also with name "foo". 
S2 now overrides S1, because S1 is weak and S2 is strong. But you want 
to prevent the override by passing the object file with S1 as last 
argument to the linker.
Do I unstand correctly?
