Yes, that's true. There is no standard as far as the
ABI is concerned so there is no way for a linker to
understand a C++ symbol generated by another compiler.
That's why commercial C++ libraries are provided with
the requirement to use a certain type of compiler (and
sometimes a certain range of version since the ABI can
change between versions of the same compiler).
