Ping. Overlooked the request?
Dr. Werner Fink WernerFink Request got declined over 2 years ago
AFAICS there is only one library /usr/lib64/libXaw3d.so.8.0.0 with soname libXaw3d.so.8 and this does *not* work on ELF systems.  We need thres libraries with soname libXaw3d.so.8, libXaw3d.so.7, and libXaw3d.so.6 as well as three libraries below /usr/lib64/Xaw3d/ with file name and soname libXaw.so.6, libXaw.so.7, and libXaw8.so.8 as otherwise the runtime linker will not accept this for e.g. the XTerm

The dynamic linker does not care about the SONAME field as long as
it can load whatever file it was asked to load. That is how I see it.

Because if ld.so really cared, using LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/Xaw3d
to make xterm use /usr/lib64/Xaw3d/libXaw.so.7 instead of
/usr/lib64/libXaw.so.7 would have already failed due to the SONAME
actually being libXaw3d.so.7.

See SR #205145 ... its based on your request but with correct ELF SONAME even if you think the linker does not care ... and *with* arrows
