Did you try something like

nm -C lib2.a | grep func2

to check that func2 is in lib2.a ?

Do you get a 'T' with nm or a 'U' (like undefined) for func2 ? 

Are you sure the signatures of the function func2 match in the header
and source files where it is declared, defined and used ?

Do you use templates ? Are you sure all your templates are implemented ?
What flags did you use to create and compile file1, file2, lib1 and lib2
