What's the output of 'file bar_32.o'?
What's the search path for your linker?

Normally when I see ld errors like that but the program still works, it
means one thing: Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the library are in
the ld search path (set in either /etc/, or LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
and the wrong version is found earlier in the path than the correct
version. ld complains when it finds the wrong version, but finds the
correct version and completes the linking correctly and silently.
