Sorry for late reply, jwpye.

Whether ldconfig(1) can catch a shared library or not can be
not so important if all applications detect by trying
linkings with explicit path or -L option.  But, even FreeBSD
ports uses ldconfig(1) to track dependency and ports
prohibits installing shared libraries with dotted versions.
(you can define NO_FILTER_SHLIBS=yes to avoid the rule.)

In fact, FreeBSD developers are discussing internally about
allowing lib*.so.major.minor versions for base shared
libraries like libc. But Python tends to keep perfect ABI
compatibility within branches and shared library major
versions are virtually useless for Python. So, I think we
can use just ".1" in FreeBSD anyways.
