So, leave the older library in place until the software has been rebuilt 
against 2.3 ... the libraries can co-exist.

I am building 2.3.11 for Red Hat Enterprise 2.1, which is essentially Red Hat 
7.2, with no real problems.

does not support newer hardware), you may consider choosing a new strategy 
for hosts you have running Red Hat 9.
