Well, what you're telling it is to link the (now existing)
executable `foo' which results in duplicate symbols (on my system;
and maybe in unknown object file or something on other systems).

I'm afraid, GPC is not (yet) able to auto-correct the typo, but
maybe someone would like to write a DWIM tool for GPC? ;-)
