    Static libraries are not supposed to be compatible across development 
environments. You should ask the third party for a shared library or a 
static library intended for your distribution.

    For the future, I would not let myself be dependent on a third party's 
ability to ship updated libraries. The next incompatabilty may be even 
harder to work around. Insist on a shared library.
