FUNCTIONS

gen_usr_ldscript [-a] <list of libs to create linker scripts for>
This function generate linker scripts in /usr/lib for dynamic libs in /lib. This is to fix linking problems when you have the .so in /lib, and the .a in /usr/lib. What happens is that in some cases when linking dynamic, the .a in /usr/lib is used instead of the .so in /lib due to gcc/libtool tweaking ld's library search path. This causes many builds to fail. See bug #4411 for more info.

Note that you should in general use the unversioned name of the library (libfoo.so), as ldconfig should usually update it correctly to point to the latest version of the library present.
