r454: * dh_makeshlibs: don't follow links to .so files. Instead, we will look
for *.so* files. This should work for the variously broken db3, liballeg, and it will fix the problem with console-tools-dev, which contained (arguably broken) absolute symlinks to real files, which were followed. Closes: #85483
