It doesn't matter as much when it's the same version because then it would have the same soversion and thus it wouldn't cause _visible_ trouble. It might be interesting to note that it seems like rc4->final also causes the same problem.

Just for completeness sake, this can usually be fixed/worked around by making sure to list just-built .la files _before_ the /usr libraries. I had to work that around on opensc before. PAM also suffers from the same issue _if_ the .la files are kept around. -- Diego Elio Pettenò — Flameeyes http://blog.flameeyes.eu/
