General linking question

I've got a general question concerning linking under RISC OS.

Let's assume that I have three object files: A, B and C. B and C are
libraries. B depends on C because it refers to one symbol from C. But
this is only needed in one function of B. Now, in order to get a
working executable of A, A has to be linked against B, but doesn't make
use of the function in B that needs the symbol from C.

How to link A and B together without the need of C? Is this possible
under RISC OS?
