Actually.  It *had* generated the symlink.  I just wasn't thinking --
I had it stuck in my head that the library base name could only be
whatever was before the first "." in the library name.  Anyway, thanks
very much for the help.  It looks like I may be able to use this
approach to at least make sure at least g-wrap does the right thing.

Does anyone else think it would be a good or bad idea to consider as a
broader recommendation?  Though it would make many library file names
a lot longer, if it worked right, it seems like it could avoid many of
the common library linkage problems where sub-library dependencies are

If nothing else, I'll probalby discuss with the other guile developers
aboud adding a recommendation that libraries that link against guile
put the libguile version in their soname...

Thanks again.
