This change was a long time coming, so many people have complained
about having under Solars/Linux and having under IRIX.
Adding 1 to the version isn't necessary, I've looked everywhere I could
think of to find out why this was done in the first place, but found
none.  I realize this change doesn't "fix" anything, and could potentially
cause problems, but these will be transient, and it is consistent with
other platforms.

I just noticed this change

2002-10-23  Robert Boehne  <address@hidden> Do not add 1 to the version under IRIX, it is
        not necessary.

in CVS libtool.  I couldn't find any rationale for it in the archives, and
fear that it might be a dangerous incompatible change:

Consider you currently have two versions of and  If you rebuild your library (without any configuration change)
after the libtool patch above, the current version will suddenly become and overwrite that older incompatible version at installation
time.  This cannot really be intended?
