Please note that the libraries are already searched twice:

u-boot:         depend subdirs $(OBJS) $(LIBS) $(LDSCRIPT)
		$(LD) $(LDFLAGS) $(OBJS) $(LIBS) $(LIBS) -Map u-boot.map -o u-boot

This is ugly, and I really would like to get rid of this.

Maybe there is a better way? We used to have ranlib for  things  like
this, but it does not seem to help on PPC. Anybody any ideas?
