I might be mistaken, but wouldn't you be able to do "-lgal -leel -lgal"?
If the interdependencies are more complex, it may be necessary to add some
more "-leel -lgal"'s to the end.  And on systems supporting shared
libraries, simply doing "-lgal -leel" would be sufficient.

[Note that cases like this are the reason why they turned off duplicate
removal in libtool's link stage]

Of course, Heavy interdependencies between two components often is a sign
that the component boundaries aren't where they should be.
