Sure, but the SONAME still has to be right, so I can't build with SONAME, symlink it to and
expect applications asking for to work.

Which means that with current libtool, I must ask it to build and then link that to, which I also can't do as
that will trash any when libtool installs the library.

I don't mind getting libtool to build, but I can't ask
libtool to *install* a that points at that file.

Thanks for reminding me that the filename is still relevant for
libraries not in; I'll have to make sure I create the links
at install time. Of course, if we do hack libtool to support alternate
SONAME values, we could also hack it to manage these symlinks for us.
