The comparison program (abipkgdiff) inspects the debug information that
is present int the debug info package associated to the current package
being built.  abipkgdiff should know if it can handle the binary or not.
That is, if the binary was generated from C or C++, for instance.

I think, there is nothing to change in koji or Taskotron for this.  The
abi checking taskotron task gets triggered on every single RPM that it
builds, and abipkgdiff is called on it.  Then abipkgdiff decides if it
can handle the RPM or not.

I hope this helps.
