This is the soname and is the right thing to depend on:

$ objdump -x /usr/lib/libldap.so.2.0.125 | grep SONAME
  SONAME      libldap.so.2

The right way in my opinion is to let rpm include these dependencies, and
not just add "Requires: /usr/lib/libldap.so.2.0.125" or something like that
in the spec file.
