That’s just weird. On my Pi’s I have 
 84 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  83400 Jan 12  2017 /usr/lib/libpigpiod_if2.so
 72 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  71280 Jan 12  2017 /usr/lib/libpigpiod_if.so
260 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 264712 Jan 12  2017 /usr/lib/libpigpio.so
and no links involving them at all. It must be something to do with one other of the zoo of path variables that unix likes to maintain and hide from us. In the ‘squeak’ shell script to start up the vm I see LD_LIBRARY_PATH being set and it looks like /usr/lib is included there. I think. Maybe.
