This is wrong.
You should make the links yourself in debian/rules, since the make
install is running ldconfig.
So, copy the libblah.so.1.2.3 in debian/rules to debian/tmp/usr/lib/
then ln -s libblah.so.1.2.3 debian/tmp/usr/lib/libblah.so.1 .
Then, in the libblah-dev target of debian/rules, you should
ln -s libblah.so.1.2.3 debian/libblah-dev/usr/lib/libblah.so .
