one way of doing that is

ln -s /usr/lib/libraw1394.so.11 /usr/lib/libraw1394.so.8

but in doing so, it appears that you are trying to find a pretty old
firewire driver and the newer version may not provide what is expected
so your mileage may vary.

To remove the 'symbolic link' created by the command above...

rm /usr/lib/libraw1394.so.8
