I have tested it, but apparently the hack doesn't work in 100% cases.
The ldconfig probably removes the symlinks in some cases.  :(

I call ldconfig -X in the %post of openssl which should update the cache
and not remove the symlinks. Any subsequent calls to ldconfig should not
remove the symlinks - at least they do not on the system where I tested
that. So there must be someting else in play.

For example in the mock builds the symlinks work otherwise many of the
rebuilds which I've already done would fail.
