[web] faq - shared libs


Hi,
here are some tweaks for the shared lib faq suggested by Jason and Alexandre.
ok?

ASCII version

The passive voice is avoided :)
	For a program which is linked against a shared library, no
	additional precautions are needed.

Which linker? I've extended the final paragraph
	For more details about the way that GCC implements these and
	other C++ features, please read the ABI specification. Note
	the std::typeinfo_t objects which must be resolved all begin
	with "_ZTS". Refer to the GNU linker's documentation for a
	description of the "-E" & "-Bsymbolic" flags. Other linkers
	might offer the same functionality with a "--export-dynamic",
	"-rdynamic" or "-Bexport" flag, or the correct functionality
	might be enabled by default. Refer to your linker's
	documentation.

ok?
