Huh?  Version scripts have been supported by binutils since at least
(according to the Debian changelog) 2001.

Or are you questioning that most libraries ought to be using version
scripts?  I said they ought to, not that they currently did; and using
version scripts isn't going to affect portability to recent Linux
distributions at all.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
