Usually the actual binary has the fully qualified version number, and
libphobos2.so would be included/created by the devel package.
This would allow someone to install multiple versions of the same lib
side by side if needed.
Also Archlinux usually doesn't have devel packages, the headers,
libraries and documentation are included in the regular package.
