First, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. If not,
please redirect me to a more appropriate location.

I'm writing about the libgdal1-1.4.0 and libgdal1-dev packages for debian:
- when trying to compile a program which uses gdal with cmake it
failed when linking as cmake is looking for libgdal.so (as it is the
name of the library on all other plateforms). However, the library
provided by the package is named libgdal1.4.0.so.

In similar situations, most debian packages add a simlink with a
generic name to the library file. Is there a reason for not creating
this simlink with the libgdal1-1.4.0 package?
