Where's the API then?

Unless I misread Christoph's question, there are _only_ two symlinks,
but not headers. In that case, something is broken terribly.

In case this is a library without a public API, it doesn't make sense
to put the .so symlinks into a separate -devel package. It must be examined
whether the .so "names" are needed at run-time, e.g. for dlopen.

So, what package is this about?
