Linux distributions use foo-devel or foo-dev for the files necessary  
for development, i.e. header files and link-time shared libraries  
(libfoo.so, vs. libfoo.so.N which is the runtime shared object; you  
can have multiple runtime versions installed for backward  

(This doesn't apply to NetBSD or FreeBSD, which always installs both  
runtime and developer components; foo-devel there does indeed mean the  
latest developer code.)
