This sounds like a build system bug of bluecove. Library packages
must not install a versionless libfoo.so symlink. This is allowed for
-dev packages, since they do not have to be installable in several
versions in parallel, but that must be the case for the actual
libraries. Also, linking against a versionless library would be very
crash prone, since you cannot rely on the library's ABI.

bluecove isn't packaged, it seems to be a third-party app?
