How about we do this:
* use absolute symlinks for the runtime libraries
libfoo.so.M and libfoo.so.M.N.
* use relative symlinks for the link-time library libfoo.so.
This would result in:
usr/lib/libz.so -> ../../lib/libz.so
usr/lib/libz.so.0 -> /lib/libz.so.0
usr/lib/libz.so.0.3 -> /lib/libz.so.0.3
i'm not sure that the usr/lib/lib/libfoo.so.M.N is actually necessary
even? ld.so will load .so.M which has always been a symlink to the
real thing, and here it doesn't point to the symlink of the real thing,
but the real thing... i don't think usr/lib/libfoo.so.M.N links to
/lib are required in any case..?
