Update library sonames before release

Must Fix for Release: No Platform: Debian

Please update library sonames according to the libtool versioning scheme as described at

No need to worry about maintaining ABI stability for the present though. With multiple libraries, how will the soname be handled? Will they all share a soname, or each have their own? If they share a soname I can stuff them all in the libqgis debian package together I think. But any ABI change will force rebuilds for all depending software(of which there is none in debian yet). With separate sonames I need to build libqgis-core0, libqgis-core0-dev, libqgis-gui0, etc. packages, but then software that depends on a specific library need not be rebuilt if the ABI changes for one of the other libraries.

I'm going to create a package for each lib, so the sonames should increase independently.

Soo... there's nothing to be done. libqgis is history and these libs are all new for 0.8. Keeping this task around as a reminder for 0.9.
