You can just use the Makefile.shlib rules normally and then rename the
file during installation.  PL/pgSQL does things this way:

# In order to use Makefile.shlib, we allow it to build a static
# library libplpgsql.a, which we just ignore, as well as a shared
# library that it will insist on naming $(shlib). We don't want to
# call it that when installed, however, so we ignore the install-shlib
# rule and do this instead:

install: installdirs all
ifeq ($(enable_shared), yes)
    $(INSTALL_SHLIB) $(shlib) $(DESTDIR)$(pkglibdir)/plpgsql$(DLSUFFIX)
    @echo "*****"; \
     echo "* PL/pgSQL was not installed due to lack of shared library support."; \
     echo "*****"
