There is no other way to properly support linking to external  
libraries, unless you use something like Mac OS X' frameworks (which  
does support transparent versioning and multi-version support,  
including name changes of individual libraries part of a framework  
even if they represent the same library version if you'd feel  
inclined to do that).

That doesn't mean Mac OS X doesn't potentially have the same library  
problems though, since most open source based libraries are not  
distributed as a framework.
