i'm not sure if i get it right, but you have to decide beforehand whether
you want standalone externals (with the FLEXT_NEW statement) or external
objects that are part of a library (FLEXT_LIB). It's not possible with flext
to combine ready-made standalone externals into a library.
With standard pure pd however (without flext), you can link the object files
of the standalone externals (but not the dlls or pd_linuxs or pd_darwins [or
pd_irixs?]) combined with a setup function for the library.
