It is a good solution, yes. The check is there because pkg will not
register shlib dependencies if the .so do not have a soname. This is a
problem because if the library gets changed and is no longer
incompatible with the previous one, you do not have a soname to check,
and pkg will not know that all its dependencies need to be reinstalled.
