I wish there was.  But "they" tend to sprinkle attribute_hidden all over
their code preventing us from being able to use it, even though we are
already linked to them. <Sigh>

Well "hidden" means, as I understand it, that they really aren't even in the
index of the object file (but I am talking past my pay grade here, being a
user-land developer and not a compiler builder).

Also note the warnings in "Writing R Extensions" as "they" are also pretty
particular about what we are supposed to take from which header files, and
which are things we ought to pretend to not know about...
