Does this work for architectures?

For C++ this makes sense but does it for C? We have worked hard to break 
down our code into small pieces to ensure we link only what is needed. 
My concern is per-function linking relaxes this but it is important?. It 
becomes difficult to avoid doing this if it is supported by an 
architecture because it works on all code including 3rd party libraries 
which is a huge win.
