Thanks for the advice. I tried using g++ for the link step. Ordinarily
that results in ld complaining that it can't find WinMain, which makes
sense because I am trying to link two .o files which do not constitute
an entire program.
I tried passing the -r option to ld using g++'s -Wl,-r option, so that
it would not expect to see WinMain; that resulted in an error very similar
to the one that I got before when I simply used ld -r.
