In that case, you weren't specific enough the first time around. To
me, "objects" refers to object files, which the assembler (not gcc)
produces. "Compatible" for dlls usually means the system can load
them, tools can manipulate them, etc. ABI compatibility at the high
level (C++) is a different story.
