Linking two static libraries that have the same symbols

I need to be able to use functionality from two static libraries which have been built under different build configurations. This is for backwards compatibility reasons. The problem is, during the linking process the library symbols conflict and the linker will just choose one over the other at random.

 

Is there anyway to get around this issue?

 

Thanks.

Last ditch hack, if Bregma's suggestions are not usable: statically link one of the libraries to a dynamically linked wrapper library which aliases the offending symbols.
