Obviously, there are about N! ways to set this up, none of which make too much 
sense, as evidenced by your two diametrically opposed solutions.  The current 
setup, however, is how other libnss modules are installed (namely, installed 
as .so, soname .so.2, symlink .so.2.).  I figured a bit of consistency is 
worthwhile, but maybe they're wrong as well?
