The problem probably comes from that 0.8.7 and have different 
sonames, and that packages in each repo have been built against their 
version of libmodplug.

Because the EPEL version is up to date, I think this would be best 
solved in ATrpms side, for example by shipping a libmodplug088 or 
libmodplug1 (where "1" comes from the bumped soname in or 
something at least for a while, and then rebuilding dependent packages 
against it.  After completing that process, I guess it wouldn't matter 
for end users whether the EPEL libmodplug or ATrpms libmodplug088 would 
be installed.
