Description of problem:
The coin-or-Ipopt-devel package contains a dynamic library, but the packaging doesn't seem to follow the usual standards. In particular,
/lib64/libipopt.so is a symlink to /usr/lib/libipopt.so.1.9.9, but I think it should be a symlink to libipopt.so.1. Also, /lib64/libipopt.so.1 should be a symlink to libipopt.so.1.9.9, but it is a file unto itself and not even identical to libipopt.so.1.9.9.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install coin-or-Ipopt-devel-3.11.9-3.fc20.x86_64
2. Install another package that runs ldconfig postinstall
Second installation complains that libipopt.so.1 is not a symlink
Same here, as a result, I'm seeing scriptlet error output too, upgrading to coin-or-Ipopt-3.11.10-1.fc20
/sbin/ldconfig: /lib64/libipopt.so.1 is not a symbolic link
In this case, libipopt.so is a symlink to libipopt.so.1.9.10 and libipopt.so.1 is not a symlink. I believe the correct convention is for libipopt.so to symlink to libipopt.so.1 and libipopt.so.1 to symlink to libipopt.so.1.9.10. Making these changes and rerunning ldconfig seems to fix the problem.
There was a problem with tests by making symlinks
libipopt.so.1 --> libipopt.so.1.9.9
libipopt.so --> libipopt.so.1.9.9
I try to fix in this way
libipopt.so --> libipopt.so.1 --> libipopt.so.1.9.9

Just updated with coin-or-Ipopt-3.11.10-2.fc21.x86_64, and it appears that the fix you have is the former, not the latter.
$ ls -l /usr/lib64/libipopt.so*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 18 Jan 23 08:24 /usr/lib64/libipopt.so -> libipopt.so.1.9.10
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 18 Jan 23 08:24 /usr/lib64/libipopt.so.1 -> libipopt.so.1.9.10
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 2689728 Jan 23 08:25 /usr/lib64/libipopt.so.1.9.10
Was expecting libipopt.so -> libipopt.so.1
The update does suppress the warning, though.
coin-or-Ipopt-3.11.10-3.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
Note that several other coin-or-* projects have the same symlink structure as you had before, with libxxx.so -> libxxx.so.1.2.3. On the other hand, several non-coin packages use the same convention, so your original fix is probably OK. Consistency across coin-or-* packages would probably be meritorious, but so would minimizing the number of patches released in a short period. Maybe go back to that in the next regular update, and apologies for misleading.
