 I'm afraid not - there is no standard method for it.

 What kind of version info are you looking for? Some libraries have version
 info in the corresponding header files, e.g. for libpng 1.2.5

#define PNG_LIBPNG_VER_STRING "1.2.5"

 others might have an API function that returns version information (can't
 think of an example now). Then there's the shared library version, e.g. for
 libpng 1.2.5

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root    bin      183972 Oct 17 12:12

 and libtool has it's own library versioning scheme which is a different
 kettle of fish altogether :-)
