I found that we also had silimar problems on FreeBSD before and it was 
resolved by patching libtool. We always use 'gmake 
LIBTOOL=/usr/local/bin/libtool' to force the use of our updated libtool 
to prevent the undefined reference error.

All libtool patches used by FreeBSD are already included in libtool 
2.4.5, but I don't know which commit fix the issue for us. I only 
remember the following two changes but I don't know whether they are 
related to the undefined reference error.


I also found static archives were generated by 'ar cru' command. If 
NetBSD uses GNU ar, it should be 'ar cruT'. Is the check added by this 
bug https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128596 doesn't work on 
NetBSD? The 'T' flag was used to workaround the 4 GiB file size limit.
