Expat Version: 1.95.8
Platform: Linux SusE 8.1
Compiler: gcc 3.3.1

On Linux the configure -> make process creates these files:
libexpat.so
libexpat.so.0
libexpat.so.0.5.0

It is hard to equate 0.5.0 with the Expat version, 1.95.8

This may cause confusion when more than one Expat
library version resides on the same system.

    The three numbers in the .so name are controlled by a set of
    conventions for updates that are not defined by Expat.
    Making these match the Expat release version is not a goal
    for the Expat project.
