Didn't though about it...

 (master) > node examples/font.js
node: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: FT_Init_FreeType

...but seems you are right, the Ubuntu-glibc compilation have the same
problem, only that lazy binding didn't showed it before.

I've tried this with no result, also by adding the -L argument and
using directly the filename and path to the .a files. Also, the
generated linker command makes use of --start-group and --end-group,
that according to the docs iterates over the object files instead of
doing only one pass until all the undefined entries are resolved...
other thing is that if this is a no-op while building a dynamic
library since some of the entries would be always undefined and
resolved in other place... Anyway, by adding the libraries at the end
as you suggested it should have work... :-/
