soname in

trying to package the current libcurl i discover that the soname
that should be specified in in the AC_INIT macro is
set to [-], which corresponds nicely with the resulting soname of
0.0.0 that i get when building the lib.

i hear that the soname should be in AC_INIT for "make dist" to
work correctly later on, even though it could be
overwritten/inserted in make the, too.

where is the soname specified in the current source? (i have been
looking at the tarball and the cvs version to figure it out, but
cant find it.)

could we have the soname in AC_INIT in the future or is there a
reason against that?
