I see. That can be arranged. I have already switched the headers
installation path to $(includedir)/libnl3 with an appropriate -I line
in the pkg-config file and I will change the library basename to libnl-3
and switch to libtool versioning, i.e. I have also
renamed the libnl-3.0.pc file to libnl-3.pc for easier checking.

That should allow for libnl3 to be installed on any system without
affecting any existing installations.
