There is one case:

hjl@gnu-6 pr16467c]$ gcc -B./  -o x pr16467c.o pr16467b.o -Wl,-R,.
[hjl@gnu-6 pr16467c]$ ./x
./x: symbol lookup error: ./x: undefined symbol:
[hjl@gnu-6 pr16467c]$ readelf --dyn-sym x

Symbol table '.dynsym' contains 11 entries:
   Num:    Value          Size Type    Bind   Vis      Ndx Name
     0: 0000000000000000     0 NOTYPE  LOCAL  DEFAULT  UND

     4: 0000000000000000 0x20eb268 NOTYPE  LOCAL  DEFAULT  UND <corrupt>

Linker should refuse to link with something like
