Here is a random idea.

get the pathname of the library(ies) then this sed expression:

sed \
'/C [lL]ibrary /!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/' \

For me it returns either 5.4.46 or 2.2 depending on what filename is fed to it.

exp: the first regexp heavily filters the input data for the second so
significantly less cpu is spent for the real matching.

/C [lL]ibrary /!d -- match example: "C Library "

match #1: [^0-9]*
match everything until we hit a digit
match #2: \([0-9.]*\)
match all digits and '.' and use pattern space #1
match #3: .*
match the remainder

We're left with pattern space #1 holding the assumed library version number.

This is done with sed version GNU 3.02.80, some versions differ, buyer beware.

$ sed '/C [lL]ibrary /!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/' /lib/
$ sed '/C [lL]ibrary /!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/' /lib/
