yes I understood that, but I thought

   Linker Directives

doesn't force the code to use entrypoints in those libs so I consider it 
weak. Anyhow despite these records being in the static library object 
files it doesn't seem to have forced msvcrt to be used directly. I 
assume that this is because earlier objects have brought in a library 
which already satisfies the externals. Or perhaps I'm just lucky in that 
the libjpeg routines don't actually use anything from msvcrt.
