This is the case too for simple test apps I tried (which work).

Isn't the linker supposed to manage duplicate -l items?

I don't like that way, because this is a "simple" c++ application with
shared libs. It should work, and it shouldn't need to turn the internas
of our toolchain upside down.

So what is the real cause for the problem here and what is the right
way (TM) to fix it?
