As an orphaned package I think it's best to remove it from the repos
entirely. It has no active maintainer in Fedora and according to their
website, upstream seems to have died more than one year ago.

However, if you want to temporarily take ownership of it just to push an
updated build, please be aware that a rebuild against new libraries can
sometimes cause weird and crazy bugs to arise from the updated libs,
depending on API/ABI usage and such, especially if the code depends on
various quirks or tweaks in the library which have since been fixed or
removed.
