I have been thinking about this for a while and here are a couple of observations: firstly, until now we stored the `.hmac` file as `/usr/lib64/.lib<name>.so.*.hmac` etc., where it was obvious that the `.hmac` file corresponds to `/usr/lib64/lib<name>.so.*`. Now, in the new format, this information (mapping between `.hmac` files and actual library files) is missing. I suggest either extending the format like:

path = ...
hmac = ...

path = ...
hmac = ...

Note the section names are library SONAMEs.

Secondly, instead of determining the library paths at `configure` time, `fipshmac` could resolve them at run time. That could be done either by taking the path to `libgnutls.so.*` only or taking SONAMEs instead of file paths, something like:
lib/fipshmac $(gnutls_so) $(nettle_so) $(hogweed_so) $(gmp_so)
