So, it is planned to really hide this library (and its RPM dependenceis)

While the directory may be private (and outside run-time linker's search
path), this is not true anymore after extending ld.so.conf. Plus, the
library within that directory is treated like a public library instead of
a private plugin (backend/module).
Currently, as it seems, the tools and demos in %_libdir/MYGUI/ subdirs for
Tools and Demos are linked with it and create a direct dependency on _any_
libMyGUI.OgrePlatform.so found in ld.so's search path. I find this
practice sort of questionable, since the library file name is unusual
enough as to create a conflict in %_libdir and justify an own dir.
That's definitely true; as i said i tried to sort out things ahead of time,
and adding the ld.so.conf entry was the workaround, because unexpectedly
the tools and demos were linked directly to the wrapper library.
I regret if it is not acceptable; i will update the package moving the library
in _libdir (well just removing it from the old subdir as you found out its a
duplicate now), and renaming it with major version, asap.
Thanks for the hints
