Given my other post about this... Perhaps the 1_32 version tag is not
superfluous in this case. And for everyones benefit, that tag is only
superfluous on platforms that have soname versions, which is a rather
small set for BBv1: gcc on Linux and OpenBSD, Intel Linux, or SunPro. So
in the FreeBSD case the 1.32.0 tag is not there AFAIK. ;-)
