Yep, this is a rpmlint bug.  It has code in place to skip all dangling symlink 
checks for *.so (no matter what the package dependencies are), but that code 
currently matches only *.so placed directly in */lib and */lib64 dirs.

Improved upstream: http://rpmlint.zarb.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/changeset/1434
