I had the same problem trying to fix a major fuckup of the libidn
maintainer: he added versions to the symbols for no reason, so the
shlibs file had to be bumped even if the ABI remained the same.
I could not find a way to build the library in a way that it would
provide the versioned symbols as aliases.
