This is a problem with xpm and sonames.  The maintainer, Michael Alan
Dorman, and ldd disagree on how to solve the problem.  Does anyone
have a solution?

xpm4.7 recently release xpm4.7.shlibs with the following line:

libXpm 4.7 xpm4.7 (>= 3.4g-1)

Unfortunately, ldd on gwm gives the following results.

ldd gwm

	libXpm.so.4 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4.7

dpkg doesn't recognize xpm4.7.shlibs since it refers to libXpm with
soname of 4.7, though ldd thinks that the soname should be 4.  I'm
using a very recent version of ldso.

Package: ldso
Version: 1.8.8-1

What is the solution to this problem.  Should ldso be fixed or is
there a solution for xpm4.7?
