With libraries named libfoo.la, there will be a libfoo.so after
installation.  If you want to avoid the 'lib' prefix: that is only
portable for modules, but not for libraries (and libtool strongly
encourages portable naming).  Modules are denoted with the -module
link flag, so you'd use something like
  pkglib_LTLIBRARIES = foo.la
  foo_la_LDFLAGS = -module

and most often, -avoid-version is used for modules, too.

Hope that helps.
