ExecutionEngine fails to use MCJIT, non-unique static member variables

I see very strange behaviour. I am linking to LLVMMCJIT and I #include
MCJIT.h. I can see in the debugger that MCJIT::Register is being called.
If I break in ExecutionEngine::create, I
can see that UseMCJIT is true and ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor is
non-zero. Still at this point (lines after 481):

    if (UseMCJIT && ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor) {
      ExecutionEngine *EE =
        ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor(M, ErrorStr, JMM,
                                   AllocateGVsWithCode, TheTM.take());
      if (EE) return EE;
    } else if (ExecutionEngine::JITCtor) {
      ExecutionEngine *EE =
        ExecutionEngine::JITCtor(M, ErrorStr, JMM,
                                 AllocateGVsWithCode, TheTM.take());
      if (EE) return EE;

The second if-branch is being executed, i.e. ExecutionEngine::JITCtor is
being called.
I can see in gdb that the breakpoint in EngineBuilder::create is present
at two different addresses, I can also see that
ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor is present twice in memory.
&ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor in MCJIT::Register: 0x9bfff0
&ExecutionEngine::MCJITCtor in ExecutionEngine::create: 0x7ffff7bd4390

Is this a linking issue?

For more info, here the linking command:

Any help is appreciated,
