Thanks.

Please let me confirm if I understood correctly.


We generally have to do something with the name-space conflict
(with 'extern "C"') in the mixture of C/C++.

Depending on the GCC version,
GCC-plugin-related libraries could be built for C or C++.

So, we need to check the GCC version and choose correct one
from C or C++.


Am I right?
