Re: Question about a library that is not creating its *.so* files

That looks fine. If you look closely you will probably see that
libCEGUIBase.so is a symlink to libCEGUIBase-0.7.0.so.

Run 'file' on those files, you'll see they are what they're supposed to be.
Then, just to make sure you're getting what you should be getting,
check the SONAMEs, make sure they match the *-0.7.0.so filenames.
And if indeed the SONAMEs have changed (as it appears they have), make
sure to update the binary package names and shlibs files accordingly.
And ask the debian-release list before uploading, since what you now
have on your hands is a library transition.
And see if it's possible to remove the .la files, as was discussed on
debian-devel awhile back.
