indeed, this occurs if I build nanomsg using the GitHub release tarball.
There is no .git accounting inside the tarball.

I think the libnanomsg.so.5.0.0 should not be a symlink, but a binary,
regardless of whether it is build from GIT or from the release.

Then there should be two symlinks to it:
- libnanomsg.so.5 (the main library version symlink)
- libnanomsg.so (the development symlink)

This is the standard way of library naming.

Best regards,

So I think I know where the “Unknown” came from.

Basically, when building from something other than git, there is no .version file (make dist used to build this I think) which results in the process having no idea what the package version. I need to think about ways to fix this — I had not built a “SOURCE” package, but it appears we actually need a separate SOURCE package.
