Something I have done in the past, worth a try, is to create a symbolic
link with the "needed" version, that links to what you have.

In my Fedora 20, inside /usr/lib64, there is a libpodofo.so that links
to libpodofo.so.0.9.1, so in other words, when the system comes looking
for libpodofo.so, it gets to the current lib that I have.

So try this command as root inside the appropriate directory:

ln -s libpodofo.so.0.9.2 libpodofo.so.0.9.1

If it works (and it likely will), it will be a lot easier than compiling
podofo, backdating podofo, or compiling Scribus.
