Just place the .so in /usr/lib and run /sbin/ldconfig in %post. It will make the symlinks according to the library soname.That is false advise, however, since you want to create all necessary symlinks in the %install section in order to include them in the %files section and the package. If you don't include the symlinks in the package, but let ldconfig create them, the files don't belong to any package, which is a packaging bug.
Really?Maybe you should then file this bug against a few hundred or so Fedora packages, that have been doing this for years.
$ rpm -q -a --scripts | grep 'install program' | grep ldconfig | wc -l 571Nope, this is not a packaging bug. This is the correct way to package libraries.
