Bug Description

lintian reports an error on the libsbigudrv2 binary package:

E: libsbigudrv2: sharedobject-in-library-directory-not-actually-a-shlib usr/lib/libsbigudrv.so.2.0.0

The result of this is that any binary linked against this library will have a reference to the full filename, libsbigudrv.so.2.0.0, instead of the 'libsbigudrv.so.2' implied by the package name; so minor revisions of the library will break all reverse dependencies.

The package also is missing a shlibs file to map library names to package dependencies anyway, which is probably related.
