That's a temporary fix, but why not fix the aclocal/automake/libtool bits 
that cause the problem in the first place?  I have been looking into that 
and found a message or two on google describing similar problems with 
other packages.  The fix in that case was to run "autoreconf -i -f".  That 
worked with another program, but does not work with libwww.  So far I have 
been unable to find the section in the autotools that actually creates 
the ".so" part of the library name.
