Description of problem:

rpmlint is flagging versionless SONAMEs in dlopen'd DSOs as invalid.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

$ rpmlint --version
rpmlint version 0.82 Copyright (C) 1999-2007 Frederic Lepied, Mandriva

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build IcedTea rpms: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433070

Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2008-03-07 16:13:10 UTC
This is Rawhide rpmlint:

$ rpm -q rpmlint
rpmlint-0.82-3.fc9

My suggestion would be that rpmlint recognize DSOs that 1) have versionless
SONAMEs and 2) are not in a standard library location as valid
implementation-private dlopen'd DSOs.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2008-03-07 18:19:02 UTC
As far as I can tell, SONAMEs are all about versioning, and versionless SONAMEs
do not have any value, no matter where the files they're in are installed in. 
Shouldn't the unversioned SONAMEs in your example cases be just removed?

Closing as dupe of bug 235486, feel free to reopen with an explanation if my
understanding is incorrect.
