Could I obtain the forms needed to make a contribution?

Hi Guys,

Sorry I switched off the email for the holidays.

I guess the problem with the linker error is, we have a distributed
build system with the linking occurring at the very end of the build
(we have a slow build, that's a different problem though).

So it's compile time that this would be preferable like -Wdate-time
does. Would introducing a new warning be the only way to achieve this?
Other than the clever linker way below?
