To suppress the version with commit's short id you need to set VERSION_PATCH to 
0 in the top-level CMakeLists.txt. See also [1] and [2]

The symlinks are created by cmake and then the files are just copied when 
installing. You can get the exact command by executing `make VERBOSE=1`. Here 
is an example

$ make VERBOSE=1 | grep cmake_symlink_library
cd /home/user/src/gr-oot/build/lib && /usr/bin/cmake -E cmake_symlink_library 
libgroot.so.v0.0.1-1-g2de47e28 libgroot.so.1.0.0git libgroot.so

$ make install | grep libgroot.*so
-- Installing: /usr/local/lib64/libgroot.so.v0.0.1-1-g2de47e28
-- Installing: /usr/local/lib64/libgroot.so.1.0.0git
-- Set runtime path of "/usr/local/lib64/libgroot.so.v0.0.1-1-g2de47e28" to ""
-- Installing: /usr/local/lib64/libgroot.so

I suspect that if you want to debug this then you need to look in 
cmMakefileLibraryTargetGenerator.cxx [3] and GrMiscUtils.cmake [4]
