I readed the library packaging guide, however there are some things
that I don't understand well.

First dh_makeshlibs created the shlibs file, I expect that the dh
script made the things well.

In my shlibs I have this:

libraryname soname package-name

This matches what appears on the guide (Chapter 6)

However, the first chapters about soname and the output of a objdump
on my libraries says that I must rename my package from
libinsight-toolkit to another name (libitk2.8 for example), but I have
many libraries inside this package.
