libevent so name changed from to - this breaks anything depending on the old soname, including ksysguard which does not launch with the error "ksysguard: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Additional info:
* 2.1.11-1

Steps to reproduce:
1) Install above version of libevent
2) Startup something that depends on kevent, such as ksysguard

Please halt rollout of libevent, until dependent packages such as ksysguard have had a chance to rebuild their packages.
