It really contains libsigcx-gtk.so.<SOVERSION>, so it "should" be
named libsigcx-gtk<SOVERSION> (according to libpkg-guide). However, I
find it more logical to name it libsigcx<SOVERSION>-gtk. Even more so,
since future versions of Yehia (the source pkg) will probably provide
libs for GTK 1.2 and 2.0, leading to pkg names
libsigcx<SOVERSION>-gtk1.2, for example.
I don't really see what's wrong with that naming scheme.
