xorg-libraries installs libXcursor.so.1, but libXcursor.so.1.0.2 is hardcoded

The xorg-libraries port installs the file

However, in xc/lib/X11/Imakefile the version
"1.0.2" is hardcoded:


which is then used in xc/lib/X11/CrGlCur.c:

 static char libraryName[] = LIBXCURSOR;

This is rater odd: why installing libXcursor.so.1,
but hardcoded looking for libXcursor.so.1.0.2 ?

Yes, I know that in CrGlCur.c, the open_library()
function will try subsequently libXcursor.so.1.0.2,
libXcursor.so.1.0 and libXcursor.so.1, until it
succeeds with the last one....

So when it's hardcoded, why not doing it right
in the first place, and hardcode libXcursor.so.1
instead ?

Is this a bug/mistake?
