That's even a broken link ( doesn't exist). I think
that's pretty clearly an RPM bug. The generated files don't match what's
in the rpm.

Hmm, or (just maybe) it might be ldconfig breaking this. E.g. rpm
installing the files and softlinks just fine, but then ldconfig (perhaps
mislead by wrong SONAMEs in the DSOs) generates wrong targets? On
reflection this can't really happen, but something to try. Perhaps an
strace of rpm while updating this package reveals something interesting.

So, there is something about symbolic links and updates that I should
know or this is a RPM bug?

The latter I think.
