           Product: lld
           Version: unspecified

          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P

With wasm its (as with LTO) its fairly common that the system `ar` tool fail to
add a symbol table.

Currently we ignore such archives.  We should try to do better in some way.

The ELF backend with process individual archive entries if the are all LTO

GNU ld will bail out with "error adding symbols: Archive has no index; run
ranlib to add one".
