- if there is no replacement, what did i have to tell the developer
he has to point to (use instead)?

In that case the developer should have provided you with their own
version of libmysqlclient.so.20 in the directory with the executable.
Then the program should probably have set a static RPATH such that this
developer provided library is used instead of distro stuff.

IF they want to use distro provided libraries, then they should provide
you with an update repository where their program is also rebuilt.

PS. As it's been indicated already, symlinks like that are bound to fail
and eventually will burn you.
