Your assumption is correct:

[root at lisse rpms]# rpm -qplv /dar/packages/allegro/allegro-4.2.1-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm  | grep liballeg
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               17 Nov 12  2010 /usr/lib64/liballeg.so.4.2 -> liballeg-4.2.1.so

It seems only the symlink is there, but not the actual library, which is 
part of the allegro-devel. This is a very unusual setup, normally the 
symlink is made the other way around and .so symlinks belong in the -devel 

I will fix it, but this is an upstream problem IMO.

PS Could you please open an issue at http://github.com/repoforge next time ?

Thanks !
