Suggest you report a bug to SGI (or the maintainer of whatever
linker you are using).  The linker shouldn't core dump.

libtool supports up to 999.

Well, not to the letter.  But we're doing things in a manner
which "works" for most platforms.

yes, but because the release will change in a manner which
requires the library version number to be bumped.  Later
patch releases, this may not be true.  For example,
just as 2.0.27's -lldap is 2:17:0...  2.1.27's -lldap
may be 2:123:0.
