[Openvas-distro] Problems with building beta2 packages

After playing around with it some more I found a few problems (which
hopefully don't result from some misreading this time):
1. openvas-client seems to build just fine.
2. openvas-libraries: In Fedora, Mandriva and openSUSE pre Factory
(11.1) the files are called /usr/lib/libopenvas.2 and
/usr/lib/libopenvas_hg.2 instead of /usr/lib/libopenvas.so.2 and
/usr/lib/libopenvas.so.2 (note the .so.) while they are correctly
named in Factory (11.1 development) for some unknown reason.
Could you please fix your configuration so that the files are named
with .so. everywhere like it was in previous versions as well and it
is common practice?
Also calling "autoreconf -fi" in %build before %configure results in
loads of "warning: missing template:" stuff - e.g. BSDI
BSD_BYTE_ORDERING DARWIN DEBUG_STORE ... - which shouldn't happen
3. openvas-libnasl: As you can see at http://pastebin.ca/1259696 the
build fails because it doesn't find some files that where compiled
under "nasl/.libs". If I move them up into the correct directory
("nasl") it complains that "-lopenvas" can not be found. I'm not sure
if this is related to the wrong naming of the files in
openvas-libraries and the absence of a /usr/lib/libopenvas.so (as you
know I'm not much a C guy).
Sp please have a look at this. As always I'm happy to try out any
suggested fixes and, of course, you are more than welcome to play
around with it yourself. The packages can be found at
