Description of problem:
Some packages, like musicbrainz or gstreamer-player, seems to build losing the
'so' extension on libraries. This is using the automake 1.7-7 in Severn.
Downgrading to automake-1.6-3 from RH9 makes things work right again. I would
think there is a bug in automake 1.7?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download mdk musicbrainz SRPM
2. fix SPEC to work for RH (just replace %mklibname with a hardcoded one)
3. build package to see issue
Actual Results: all files which where supposed to have a .so* suffix get none
or just the so number as prefix.
Expected Results: na

Package that exposes the problem
When I try to build with automake-1.6.3-5 or automake16, adding:
before %configure, I get the same result as with automake-1.7.
This is the first report I have seen of this. Are you sure it's not
a libmusicbrainz problem?
I recommend asking on the bug-automake or automake lists too.
This sounds a little too bizarre to have been missed for so long.
Please re-open if you are still able to reproduce. Thanks.
