problems with .so names in Debian

Things that are not proper names for shared libraries are finding
their way both into the link step and into the installation, see
below.  I suspect breakage in libtool or configure (which creates the
libtool script), but have no expertise there at all.

This is an old install, but a fairly recent CVS update (a week ago at
most) showed the same problem with liblwp as this has with librpc2.3
(ie, no '.so' extension).  It seems to work at runtime.

bash-2.05b$ ldd `which clog`
    librpc2.3 => /usr/lib/librpc2.3 (0x40024000) => /usr/lib/ (0x4004b000) => /usr/lib/i686/cmov/ (0x40054000) => /lib/ (0x40145000) => /lib/ (0x40157000) => /lib/ (0x40286000)
    /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000)
bash-2.05b$ ls -l /usr/lib/librpc*
lrwxrwxrwx        16 2003-11-17 09:37 /usr/lib/librpc2.3 ->
-rw-r--r--    213870 2003-09-02 14:18 /usr/lib/librpc2.a
-rw-r--r--       798 2003-09-02 14:17 /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx        16 2003-09-03 08:52 /usr/lib/ ->
lrwxrwxrwx        16 2000-10-09 19:37 /usr/lib/ ->
-rw-r--r--    137944 2000-10-09 19:06 /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx        16 2003-09-03 08:52 /usr/lib/ ->
-rw-r--r--    147984 2003-09-02 14:18 /usr/lib/
-rw-r--r--     36714 2003-10-27 11:34 /usr/lib/librpcsvc.a

NB the link librpc2.3 used to have the same date as the other links,
but I "cleaned it up" when I found it and then found myself forced to
restore it.
