most likely a false positive in lintian (due to the embedded version
string in the source packge). so: ignore.

the .so-file (that is: the .so.0.7.6 file) should be in libdrumkv1-0.
the symlink should be in libdrumkv1-dev.

you might want to generate (and maintain a d/libdrumkv1-0.symbols file.
(if that's a C-library, the request is reasonable).

if you *do have* a libdrumkv1-0 package that it should be installed.
you only should have a libdrumkv1-0 package,


all that i've written above is valid (only) if the source package
provides library packages (e.g. you split it into drumkv1, libdrumkv1-0,
afaict, the package is currently unsplit (there's only a single
"drumkv1" binary package).
it the (supposedly new) lib*.so is of general interest (outside of the
drumkv1 binary package), you might consider splitting the package up.

if you think the library is too specific, the lib*.so* files should go
into /usr/lib/${TRIPLET}/drumkv1/lib*.so* (adjust the build system
accordingly) and these lintian warnings should be void.
