	8 All external object and function references are resolved.  Library

   I interpret this to mean, "if the given object files do not include an
object or function with external linkage, then said objects or functions
can be pulled from a "library".

Which library if there were multiple ones containing the same external

   I don't think that's covered in the C Standard.

Well, the C standard does (un-)define it for an entire program (the set of translation units and libraries). You are the one who wants to have certain parts of those libraries excluded from the entire program based on a linking order.

I know that the C tool
chains I've used over the years have all defaulted to "seach each library,
in order specified on the command line" which seems a reasonable thing to

This order is actually required by POSIX[88], so most UNIX compilers will behave this way. One exception is apparently clang[89]. But, AFAICS, unfortunately even POSIX does not define whether multiple definitions are allowed or not.
