As such, the (Python extension) library cannot be included in any RPM
package, because it has no soname. Is there a CMake configuration option, so
that that library gets a proper soname?

Moreover, it could be a good idea to deliver it in a dedicated
sub-directory, for instance /usr/lib[64]/python2.6 or
/usr/lib[64]/python2.6/boost, because if left in /usr/lib[64], there is no
hint as to what that library is aimed at.
Do you know whether there is a CMake configuration option for that as well?

Thanks in advance

Best Regards
