While attempting to bind an iOS library that I created that is quite simple and presents a view from a xib. I followed the tutorial here: http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/ios/advanced_topics/binding_objective-c/binding_walkthrough
However, when trying to build the test project I get the error: "native linking failed. please review the build log. (MT5202)"
Here is the build log for the project. The issue seems to be many "duplicate symbols."
<Build log too big for here, attached as text file>
The problem is that the native library has been incorrectly built for the i386 architecture. Every i386 object file is duplicated.
> lipo libEADemoViewSDK.a -thin i386 -output libEADemoViewSDK.i386.a
> ar -t libEADemoViewSDK.i386.a | sort
Which explains all the duplicated symbols.
