Programs like 'gcj-dbtool' and 'gij' are linked

be possible to use one particular libgcj.so -- the one 'gij' is linked
to. At least, that is true in the common case... e.g., eclipse, which
in the end invokes 'gij' at startup.
Or am I missing some magic that lets us pick libraries at runtime?
I don't know how this could work, but I'm ready to be enlightened :-)
What prevents other programs to use libgcj.so (or now that there is
libgij.so also libgij.so)?
And when they do, you don't know if those programs will be 32-bit or
