Backticks (`) in makefile

Thanks a lot..
As we've also to port the libstdc++-v3, some small doubts ..
The idea i got is, the standard lib in C++ will have some OS specific
libraries and some will be architectute specific..Is it true ?
 How to identify them ?

The next in line is, regarding ABIs ..
For the compiler we'll have to define one ABI.. And again for standard lib
in C++, we'll again have to define some C++ ABI..At least that's what i
understood..

In which way they differ ?

Bye
