My understanding was that the runtime_loader would only load GCC4
libraries for GCC4 apps. It definitely seems like an error to load
GCC2 libraries for a GCC4 apps (or vice versa.) Of course it is really
only an issue for C++ code, and maybe we could somehow mark C-only
libraries to explicitly tell the runtime_loader they are safe to load
regardless of the app's compiler. But in general the runtime_loader
should error out if the compilers don't match between app and library.
