In general, no.  There's a magic number but only indicates the major
version.  Specific COM32 files do utilize the build data but to my
knowledge, only 2.  Specific to ldlinuxc32, I also don't know if there
is a way.

It would be nice if this were embedded into the COM32 header format
(version number and the string).
