Debian package naming

INHERIT += "debian"

Placing the above line into your ${DISTRO}.conf or local.conf will trigger renaming of packages if they only ship one library. Imagine a package where the package name (PN) is foo and this packages ships a file named libfoo.so.1.2.3. Now this package will be renamed to libfoo1 to follow the Debian package naming policy.
