The situation is C++-only -- there's no std way to mangle C++ symbols into
a C symbol table. g++ changed its mangling format for 3.x :( So if you
have a shared library (like kdelibs!) with C++ symbols, built with g++
from gcc 2.9x.x, there's a good chance it won't link if you try to link it
with g++ from gcc 3.x.
