Linker builder failure

I am trying to include a pre-compiled library in for the build as shown below

[env:nodemcuv2]
platform = espressif8266
board = nodemcuv2
framework = arduino
build_flags = -L~⁨/Documents⁩/⁨PlatformIO⁩/⁨Projects⁩/⁨bme-680-nova-pm-8266⁩/lib/bsec_iot_example ⁩-llibalgobsec.a

But I get the following error

*** [.pio/build/nodemcuv2/firmware.elf] Implicit dependency `/Users/johnsinha/.platformio/platforms/espressif8266/builder/⁩-llibalgobsec.a' not found, needed by target `.pio/build/nodemcuv2/firmware.elf'.

Here is the rest of the output

I have checked the .platformio/platforms/espressif8266/builder/⁩-llibalgobsec.a directory and the the libalgobsec.a is present. I know the linker picks up the binary in question since when I comment out the line in the platformio.ini file, I get the following error

Any idea what could be wrong?

The -l flag needs the name of the library without the lib in the name. So just say -lalgobsec there
