I assume with "objects" in the first sentence you mean named C++ entities like classes and functions, not linkable object files, right?  In that case, there might be three different solutions:  Either, the same-named entities are more or less copies of each other.  In that case, the best fix would be to fold them into a single instance (but that of course can be somewhat difficult as long as your changes are BIGSVX conditional.)  Or the same-named entities are different things, in which case either C++ namespaces or renaming would help (and the latter is preferable if it helps avoid confusion).
