In libtool jargon, ".so file" is a synonym for a shared library.
This includes all companion files, but their names and number
depend on libtool's configuration and build options.  E.g., HP-UX
uses .sl instead of .so for the shared library file name extension,
but libtool users on HP-UX also talk about .so files, so that
libtool users on other systems don't get confused.
