Question library version??

Hi, Penguins.

I am confused. I have etch penguin running.

Story is:

A program needs, my penguin has

So that I looked for Debian site for and found libtiff3g package at old stable. Then I downloaded source code and compiled (tiff-v3.5.5). -> libtiff.a popped out

Not knowing what to do next, I downloaded current source code from, (tiff_3.8.2)-> compiled-> popped out -> installed-> and things look good. (tiff_3.8.2) is the same package as etch. (why not ????)

I do not have much experience at conventional and elf libraries, (and numbers after .so)

What defines library type and numbers?

Happy Penguins!!
