[lsb-discuss] appchk bug?

If an executable depends on an so which does not end in .so appchk does 
not check the library and flags the library as "missing".

For example, given the following tree:


Running appchk

lsbappchk -D/tmp/myapp/bin -j /tmp/myapp/bin/myapp

The journal will produce a DT_NEEDED message for mylib.so.1 as not being 
part of the LSB. The way I interpret the -D option this library should 
be found, checked and there should not be a complaint about DT_NEEDED 
for myapp?
