If the major number is the same for a library, there's no need for
compatability libraries. So this doesn't matter.
I'm talking about this sort of situation:
libfoo.so.3 -> libfoo.so.3.12
libfoo.so.4 -> libfoo.so.4.1
libfoo.so -> libfoo.so.4
When we added the compatability package, which included libfoo.so.3.13,
the libfoo.so.3 link has to be updated.
