It's usually possible to have the devel packages co-exist by renaming
the new library (make it libopenal-soft.so). This may require a small
patch to any app you want to build against the new version (make it look
for libopenal-soft instead of just libopenal), but I think this is
preferable to conflicting -devel packages.
