Yes, the OpenBSD linker fails to recognise libraries which don't end in the
major.minor version numbers. It doesn't care particularly what they are, so
a SHLIB_EXT of .so.0.0 will work perfectly (and that is what I used
initially, but it seemed a little clumsy).
For the libraries accompanying the packages etc. that are only dlopen'ed,
any extension will do, so I left it as ".so" as that is consistent with
most other OS's.
