between openssl and openssl

The current rawhide updates include openssh-3.9p1-12 which requires,
provided, openssl-0.9.7e. The catch is that this makes
'libssl.so.5' and 'libcrypt.so.5' while most anything on a system
which refers to these libraries, and that is a lot, want to see
'libssl.so.4' and 'libcrypt.so.4'. So we have new packages
'openssl097a' which supply these. Rejoice.
The catch is that yum is not picking up these packages at all
and does not seem to notice the above. I tried different things
and no dice. Eventually I ended up with something like
yum -c local.conf install openssl097a openssl-0.9.7e
With -d5 that produced the following:

And that was it. So what is an "official" way to get out of that maze?
I eventually gave up and did 'rpm -Uvh --nodeps ...' on these packages
which allowed me to follow with the rest. Bugs in package
dependencies or in yum? Or just the way that it is ...?
There is another catch. 'kdelibs', the latest one and obviously also
everytning, wants explicitly 'openssl = 0.9.7a' instead of "*.so.4"
and is not going to be satisfied with openssl097a. But that is
yet another story.
