Tell me how to obtain it from the 
string libsigcx-gtk1.2.so.1

Note that most of other gnome packages in Debian will use the
notation, libsigcx-gtk1.2-1
You may wish to go through each package name to find out
that you are the odd one out.

Define what SOVERSION is.
You can only reasonably define SONAME.

You can read over libpkg-guide, and if you still don't understand,
please tell me what part you fail to understand, so that I can 
fix the documentation.

If you think that policy is the only document you have to
follow, you are mistaken.
