It does not convert SS7 to PRI.  Libss7 provides a native interface to 
chan_dahdi/Asterisk of SS7, much in the same way that libpri provides a 
native PRI interface to chan_dahdi/Asterisk.  However, if you are trying 
to convert SS7 to PRI, you can certainly use Asterisk + libpri + libss7 
to do so :-)
