Unless I'm mistaken, <tag> appends to the base name, and we would want
to prepend "lib".

Actually, I think it should prepend "lib" on Unix whether or not a <tag>
is specified. You may want it to be "libfoobar.so" &"foobar.dll" for
release and "libfoobar_d.so" & "foobar_d.dll" for debug, for example.
