Unfortunately, the autotools and CMake build systems used different SO
name versioning. I'm not sure what's the best way to resolve this, but
I'm inclined to changing the CMake build system to follow the
libtool-like version numbers we used in the past.

Is it a problem though? The major version stayed the same, which is
what most applications link against.
