technically the correct thing to do is to install as libXX.so.1 and then
have the .so symlink point to the sonamed library.  This allows more
than one soname lib to exist at the same time (if necessary).  The .so
file is only used when linking.

For example:

	libtalloc.so -> libtalloc.so.1

Not the other way around.  Do you agree?

cheers, jerry
