Problem with library filenames on FreeBSD 5.4

When I try to compile a new cvs version of Root on FreeBSD 5.4, ".." is append to the shared library filenames in the compilation process. I've looked in
the makefiles and I've not been able to figure out where this ".." come from. SOEXT is "so" as for most OS. Here is an example of failure in the build process:

gcc -O -pipe -W -Wall -fPIC -DG__REGEXP -DG__UNIX -DG__SHAREDLIB -DG__ROOT -DG__REDIRECTIO -DG__OSFDLL -Iinclude -o cint/src/loadfile.o -c cint/src/loadfile.c
g++ -shared -Wl,-x -Wl,-soname, -O -o lib/
