No other packages depend on it:
$ repoquery --alldeps --whatrequires mygui
Actually, to have the run-time linker find libMyGUI.OgrePlatform.so in
%_libdir/MYGUI/, the package adds a file in /etc/ld.so.conf/. Rather
pointless, because then it could be stored directly in %_libdir instead.
Currently, the reinstalled -demos and -tools seem to work, too, so the
problems with unowned dirs are minor.
On F-15, libMyGUI.OgrePlatform.so is duplicated, as it is included also in
mygui-devel ... directly in %_libdir.
