I believe not.

I guess I was thinking about adding a new library in addition to the
existing ones.  Frankie pointed to some linker tricks that might make
it possible to have a wrapper library that renames symbols as
necessary. This library could be private to the polymake package.  I'm
still a little fuzzy on how that would work, and how horrible it would

There is also a small patch (apparently for re-entrancy) that hasn't
been pushed upstream yet, but probably could be.  I'm working through
the somewhat larger diffs to lrslib (also mainly about re-entrancy),
and then I can forward the CDD patch upstream if you like, after I
stare at it a bit more.
