I think it is minor bug. SONAME is used by linker to setup dependencies
(NEEDED) in a final binary. Plpgsql is loaded dynamically and postmaster
is not linked with this library directly. It means that this problem
does not occur anywhere. I don't expect that somebody will link these
libraries and create separate binary.
However, if I look into lib directory there are only five libraries with
lib prefix and 60 without prefix.
I suggested to introduce SO_PREFIX variable which will be used for
affected five libraries in their makefiles. And also adjust pgxs.mk to
keep name untouched.
