If there is no associated soname, but only a symlink, I think that it is
normal that rpm doesn't detect it, and the linker shouldn't either.
If libcaca now provides the soname, then there is a bug somewhere.

But would the linker find the link? If not then the Provides should not
be there and packages should be rebuilt, to pick the new soname.
