[R] Combining shared libraries (*.so files) directly?

This is an off topic.

Is it possible to combine a few shared library files (.so files)
without changing source files of the libraries?

I am not sure whether it makes sense or not. I have a few shared
libraries and mainly use them separately. But sometimes, for the
purpose of easy transportation and loading, I would like to combine
them together to form a single big .so file. I could do this
by combining all relevant source files together and rebuild it.
But I wonder whether it is possible to directly combine the .so
files. Comments or hints are welcome. The shared libraries are built
in a Linux system and used with S+6 and R.
