I doubt it really has an effect on that.  As I mentioned earlier,
I've been able to link and use rump kernels pretty much that way for
over a year now (i.e. cc -o foo ${*.o} foo.kmod bar.kmod -lrumpxyzzy).
In fact, it was supported way before I added support for dynamically
loading and linking modules via rump_sys_modctl().

What, specifically, is the problem with the netbsd.o approach?
(changing the default link that way would be good step, especially for
people wanting an easy-to-grow-at-home-from-sets MONOLITHIC)
