Maybe this gcc option could be useful?

     Print the full absolute name of the library file LIBRARY that
     would be used when linking--and don't do anything else. With this
     option, GCC does not compile or link anything; it just prints the
     file name.

I think what's really needed is a pkg-config for gcc
