A lot of spec files use %define sover 0; but it does not change

I guess rpmlint cannot do this on mingw cross-compiles as the DLL
probably does not have the equivalent SOVERSION.

So one has to trust the packager to get this correct. Which I am trying to do.

You can check for abi changes with abi-compliance-checker, it's a perl executable so it should work on anything with perl.
