ldconfig will ONLY update the link for the soname. Others must be
updated by ln -s. rpmlint will call it an error no matter what, there is
NO combination of links that rpmlint won't complain about (on FC4). I
was trying to find a way that rpmlint accepts, an there are none. So if
ldconfig and ln are the proper ways (in any combination), I have to
accept rpmlint saying they are all wrong.
