liblockdep soname versioning

Hi Sasha,

We've had a request [1] to package up liblockdep in Fedora. Looking
things over, I noticed the library isn't actually versioned at all and
instead just builds a plain .so file. That's likely fine during
development of it, but if distros are to ship it for broader use then
it would be a good idea to specify the soname and use a versioned .so.

The makefile already has LIBLOCKDEP_VERSION defined. Would it be
possible to use this as the soname and version number? Then could be the normal symlink to the versioned .so
( in this case).
