when use  dynamic load, RAP module should have unresolved symbol most time, 
And maybe unresolved symbols scatter over 2 or more files,  one BaseImage is not enough.
So I suggest rtems-ld just throw a warning not a error.

Another suggestion is  option -e(--entry) is not essential.  We just use dlsym to find a entry.(or there is another way to run entry?)

Have you tried ...

$ rtems-ld -b BaseImage -e b_main a.o b.o -o z.rap


You should be able to load modules with an unresolved error and when the module
with the symbol is loaded it is resolved.
