I suspect incremental linking will place all the object files into the
final output. If this is ok incremental linking is fine.
FYI I use autoconf, automake and libtool. One project has about 300
application C and C++ files and the executable is 1.6M in size. The
issue is the ELF output file with debug info is 17M in size so high
speed disks and RAM is more important than the number of object files.
