I belive that short answer in no.  Longer answer: IIUC Linux Standard
Base is a _binary_ specification.  "Canonical" gpc distribution
is in source form.  In particular configure/build process is
supposed to discover and use capabilities of the target platform.
So one way to get LSB compliant gpc would be to compile gpc
on "true" LSB system -- that is system which provides all LSB
specified capabilities and nothing more.

If you want to deliver LSB compliant application simpler way may
be to statically link all functions not included in LSB.
