rules on generating dlname

I've read through the libtool manual and google'd around, but the following has me dumfounded.

When I compile the librfm library (basic functions for Rodent Filemanager,, I get the
following stuff in .libs:

-- lrwxrwxrwx 1 edscott users     16 nov  3 00:18 ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 edscott users 261997 nov  3 00:18
lrwxrwxrwx 1 edscott users     12 nov  3 00:18 -> ../
-rw-r--r-- 1 edscott users    952 nov  3 00:18 librfm.lai
lrwxrwxrwx 1 edscott users     16 nov  3 00:18 ->

But the file specifies a weird name:

# The name that we can dlopen(3).

This symlink gets generated when I do a make install.  Why does libtool use this weird name?
I guess it means something, but I can't figure it out. Other libraries I create with libtool have regular
a "dlname" (one of the "library_names").

Could anyone please tell me what libtool means when this kind of weird dlname is generated in the .la file?

Any pointer would be greatly appreciated.
