Poof this will be hellish mess to do for all merged libraries :-)

See above :-)

Maybe there would be code in to actually prevent enabling
of mergelib when binfilter is enabled?
It would be smaller to do such change, what ya think?

I didn't mess myself with 4.7 gcc yet, i am still on rock-solid
gcc-4.6 (not feeling brave). Or secure enough we can say. I want this fixed before I move to
