this is not the right fix,

the problem is that api/main.o is duplicated:
once because of the %.exe: %.o rule and once
in the api/main.OBJS.

but all other api/*.o files are not duplicated
and should be linked (so we link test all
referenced symbols not just include header test).

i'm considering doing

 $(B)/%.exe: $(B)/%.o
-       $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) $($*.LDFLAGS) -o $@ $< $($*.OBJS) $(LDLIBS) $($*.LDLIBS) 2>$@....err || echo BUILDERROR $@; cat $@....err
+       $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) $($*.LDFLAGS) -o $@ $(sort $< $($*.OBJS)) $(LDLIBS) $($*.LDLIBS) 2>$@....err || echo BUILDERROR $@; cat $@....err

(note: the make sort function removes duplicates)
