We will know once we see an strace. If the SONAMEs aren't completely

My guess is that /usr/lib/ has a soname of 0.99.14...

strace available at
ldconfig is who changes the /usr/lib/ symlink to point to (line 10653 of strace) rpm previously has
correctly set it to (line 3615).
But rpm first calls ldconfig and *after* unlinks,
"confusing" ldconfig.
I don't know how the update process in rpm or
ldconfig are supposed to work, but is this normal?

Yes, that's perfectly normal.

Ah, you're symlinking library names. Though, I never was successful
