I also think it is not necessary, I guess the files in %{_libdir}/gaim
are dlopened.

In gaim there is
%{_libdir}/libgaim-client.so.*

I would say that it is an error. But I can't say for sure. I have seen that
gaim-meanwhile does the same, but gaim-otr and gaim-gaym don't do that 
ldconfig call. Maybe the good thing would be to fill a bug against
gaim-gadugadu and gaim-meanwhile.
