But I want to build a total of four packages - aspell (containing the
binaries), libaspell0 (containing the libraries), libaspell-dev (containing
the header files) and aspell-doc (containg the documentation).

Do you think I should just build three packages instead - aspell (binaries
+ shared libraries), libaspell-dev (headers + static libraries) and
aspell-doc (containg the documentation) ?

No.  I was just wondering whether it should be .so.0.26.2 .
