Summary: -soname missing from GNU builds

Initial Comment:
Affects current 8.4.11 release and cvs HEAD.  
 
After packaging tcl8.4 and tk8.4 for an experimental Debian  
based distro, the systems abort with a message about not  
finding LIBTCL 8.4 & LIBTK 8.4 - This can be tracked to the  
linker not inserting soname.  
 
Borrowing SHLIB_LD_FLAGS from tcl8.4-8.4.9 and hacking  
unix/tcl.m4 and unix/Makefile.in, I managed to fix the  
problem for i386 builds.. The diff would need cleaning up
before submission and would probably break other unix
builds (assuming one is required).
 
Regards, Paul Corner.

Had been following the advice in
http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Program-Library-HOWTO/shared-libraries.html 
 
Debian's default policy appears to be libtcl8.4.so.0 for the run time
lib, and use a symlink, libtcl8.4.so, in the dev package - The Fedora
patch only addresses half the problem..
 
On reflection, this bug report may be better off being directed at
the package maintainer over at Debian if/when it hits Unstable - In
which case, feel free to close this report.
 
Regards, Paul.
