The splitting of symbols has failed. As explicit said in the error log.

I advise you to use a SDK (or a minimal toolchain if this suvise) for
you to build it locally before integrating it into your layer.

Some possible issues might be:

 * already stripped binaries
 * binaries being generated without symbols due build flags

Regarding to your post, please next time put the files somewhere (and
maybe use a pastetool aka pastebin) so you avoid sending attachments.
Attachments should be avoided as much as possible, except if you are
explicitly asked to attach something.
