Well -- Although I've never seen another system that names that way (neither
SunOS nor NetBSD do it that way, so characterizing it as a BSD problem isn't
exactly correct), if it's proper for FreeBSD to name libraries that way, then
autoconf should detect it.

If FreeBSD doesn't normally name libraries that way, then the listed libraries
have improper installs and whoever built them for FreeBSD needs to be told
about the problem.
