section 8.1 of debian-policy states that

Does not this mean that ldconfig creates the symbolic link for the shared libraries? In this case, correct me if I am wrong, ldconfig should create libfortranposix.so.0 which should point to libfortranposix.0.0.0

According to the policy you have to provide them by yourself in your
run-time library package (e.g. libfortranposix0).
Based on other replies to this thread, I understand that, I have to create the link myself in the run-time library package. I also understand the reason for not employing ldconfig to do that. But can you please tell me, where in the policy does it say that? I could have missed it while reading and would like to know which sentences convey this information. Please dont just give the section numbers, I am looking for some sentences quoted from the debian-ploicy here.
