They're not different; it's just that libtool support for Hurd is
still too limited. libtool was never instructed to create this link
on Hurd (library_names_spec is missing a `.so$major' name), nor is
soname_spec set to `.so$major', so library upgrades just won't work.
Libtool support for Hurd must be improved. I'd appreciate if someone
more knowledgeable on Hurd could take a look at the linux-gnu* section
of ltconfig.in (just after the comment `This must be Linux ELF') and
tried to port as much of that as possible of those settings to the
Hurd configuration (gnu*), a few pages before that.
