Since it seems that evidence of built type is stored in shared libraries on Solaris, is it reasonable for libtool (or even GNU ld or GCC) to inspect this data and warn about potential incompatibly at link time?

There are of course many other types of subtle incompatiblies which may occur when linking libraries.
