Thanks Andreas. This is excellent information, but I'd like to
understand why this is so. Can you point me to a reference that
describes this transformation, and perhaps it's rationale?

One thing that bothers me a little is that we never really did solve
Gerald's original problem. He said his library was created just fine when
he was passing 2:0:0, but when he switched to 2:0:1, it created a library
with a version number of 1:1:0. Now, why would Libtool do this? Granted,
he didn't really want 2:0:1, but 2:0:1 isn't a bogus triplet, either. So
why did Libtool convert it to 1:1:0?
For the linux way of library versioning the library suffix is computed
as (current-age).age.revision, thus 2:0:1 maps to 1.1.0. A libtool
version of 1:1:0 whould map to 1.0.1.
Thanks in advance,
