Strange mix of SO version for libpari.so

Compiling pari-2.5.3 (the problem goes back to at least 2.5.0) produces 
a libpari.so.2.5.3, but uses -Wl,-soname,libpari.so.3. What is the 
reason that this obvious mismatch has been put into the Makefile?

(libpari.so.2.5.3 will never be used, because all programs that link to 
libpari.so will get the library's SONAME - so.3 - encoded in the 
DT_NEEDED entries.)
