I was ending up with so.SOVERSION when building this, so through some research I have come up with this patch to correct the issue.
If there is a better way, please let me know.
Builds fine on Kubuntu Utopic frameworks chroot. Results in the expected:
libdolphinprivate.so
libdolphinprivate.so.4.97.0
libdolphinprivate.so.5
libkdeinit5_dolphin.so
libkonq.so
libkonq.so.4.97.0
libkonq.so.5

Hmm, now we seem to have a strange situation between KDE4 and KF5/PN.  

The latest version of libkonq with KDE4 is 5.14.0  (libkonq.so.5.14.0)  with libkonq.so.5 pointing to it. 

With this change libkonq has a lower version (4.97.0;  libkonq.so.4.97.0) with libkonq.so.5 pointing to it. 

This would mean that libkonq is no longer co-installable with its KDE4 version due to both using libkonq.so.5.  Given that there must have been a reason in the past to use libkonq.so.5.14.0, I would suggest to move libkonq version to 5.97.0  and use libkonq.so.6. This would ensure co-instability and consistency in version numbering. 
  1. Another idea is to rename the library to KF5 naming conventions. Maybe even drop the "konq" name, and use something which better describes it.
  2. pushed a change to set it to 6.0.0
