True - but we can always still use -Wl,-R *if there is a problem*. I think
this is a case where the default should be "do what the user probably wants
rather than fail".
I suppose it could be more complicated; see if you find any, and if you find
more than one, complain about the ambiguity, but otherwise, go ahead and run;
if there's only one, it's almost certainly a better result than failing.
