I have to support two of these library versions as 'current' for other
reasons, so applications need to be able to link against either libXaw7
or libXaw8 at build time, so I need two unversioned .so files...

You see, libXaw8 includes XPrint support, which is not universally loved
by the X community, so applications not interested in printing shoud
link against libXaw7 as libXaw8 is not present on most Linux systems.

Yes, there are probably too many constraints on the solution space.
