See libpkg-guide for some help.
adding something to:
libwhatever_la_LDFLAGS = -export-dynamic -release @VERSION@ -version-info 0:0:0
to Makefile.am should create something reasonable for an unstable shared
library, suggest using this for the upstream (if they do versioning at all).
But I suggest reading libtool/autoconf/automake manual a bit.
