    Huh.  At least on CDC's NOS operating system, the `linker' noted at
    which point in the command processing a module had been introduced,
    and circled through the list until the module had a chance to have
    externals satisfied from all the other files - whether they occurred
    before or after it.  I forget whether preference was given to those
    before (which had not yet been referenced) or those after.

    Now, *there* was an operating system!  But that doesn't help the
    current discussion.

    Maybe the build for libphp.a should insert the regex modules
    directly into *that* file?

    #ken    :-P}
