I would definitely filter it
So would I.
Such provides are supposed to be referring to *.sos in ldd's
search-path. Not filtering would just fillup the rpmdb with bogus
contents and are possible causes for rpm-dep conflicts.
IIRC, such conflicts once had hit some perl modules. For them, filtering
meanwhile is considered mandatory.
Or get rpm to autoprov only on ldpath'd items...
Does ldd pickup non-"lib" prefixed *.sos?
