[sword-devel] Linux: Linking to Sword library with potentially different names

I need some advice from you Linux experts.

Cyrille tested Ezra Project on Linux and couldn't run it, because the 
Sword package on that system (custom Sword 1.8.1 on Ubuntu 18.04) 
contains a differently named *.so file than on my system (Default Sword 
package from Ubuntu 18.04 => libsword11v5).

What can I do to support multiple *.so variants with the same binary? Is 
there a way to do that?

I was thinking about creating a symlink within my application directory 
structure that can be adjusted at runtime based on some dynamic system 
inspection code.

Best regards,
