[Rd] shared libraries: missing soname

R's shared libraries are linked without setting the soname.  This is causing problems for some consumers.

        Error: /usr/local/lib/R/library/tseries/libs/tseries.so is linked to
        /usr/local/lib/R/lib/libRblas.so which does not have a SONAME.  math/R needs
        to be fixed.

What's the correct way to add the necessary linker flags?  I believe it should be something like this.

       cc -shared -Wl,-soname,...
