Then "perl ... ldopts" should print out the proper Perl library
version number. It doesn't. It's broken.

That's not how shared libraries should work. A system should have:
libfoo.so.x -> libfoo.so.x.y
libfoo.so -> libfoo.so.x
When you say "-lfoo", the linker should pick "libfoo.so.x.y", OR
"libfoo.so.x". Picking "libfoo.so" is broken.
