There isn't any problem with the libxerces-c-3.1.so name.
Try to keep shared library version numbers in the libfoo.so.0 format.
Our runtime linker only cares for the major (first) number.

There isn't. We leave the library name just like upstream/author wants it to be. We only hack the library version if needed.
