This is an artificial test case - what's the real failure? An upgrade
from what to what is behaving like this?

What's happening in the above case is that the libtool install mode runs
ldconfig -n for that directory, and ldconfig updates the symlinks to
point to the "latest" version available as appropriate, where it
presumes that 0.9.5-old is a greater version than 0.9.5.
