This will not work. The linker does not know the library is a library of
libraries. The linker will only work with a library of object files. You need
to *merge* the libraries.

There is no standard way to do this. It is often hand crafted to suit your
build system specifics. A nice example is already in RTEMS and used to build
the librtemscpu.a library. Take a look in:
and search for 'librtemscpu.a: $(TMP_LIBS)'. This script code extracts the
libraries into a directory then creates a new library containing all the
extracted object files.
