I think the answer is "no, there's no good way to do this".

This is mainly because when you pass "-version-info C:R:A" to libtool,
the SONAME that results can be different between different systems.
Indeed, some systems (IRIX, I think) don't even have a single SONAME.

If you aim a bit lower, and are only concerned about keeping the
SONAME for one system, say linux, then you can just reverse-engineer
the computation that libtool does.  Then choose values for Current,
Revision, and Age that give you the answer you want.
