rtems-libbsd: libalias - Multiply defined symbols

I tried to see what the entire set of undefined symbols
was in libbsd.a starting with this command to turn the
library file into an archive with all internal references

powerpc-rtems4.11-ld -r -o joel.rel --whole-archive libbsd.a

The above command reports a number of multiply defined
symbols from libalias. 8 files in our tree have a structure
like this:

struct proto_handler handlers [] = {

The files are:


I think these are intended to be defined as modules and
used that way so the duplicate symbol can't occur.  Any thoughts
on what to do with these for RTEMS?
