Solution

I suggest downloading a shared-compat package from http://dev.mysql.com/ and replacing the default mysql-libs with that. shared-compat provides all versions of MySQL client libraries and it should satisfy any future software upgrades or installations. For example use the package called MySQL-shared-compat-5.5.24-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

To install it, remove the existing mysql-libs package while ignoring any dependencies with rpm -e --nodeps mysql-libs and immediately install the new package with rpm -ihv MySQL-shared-compat-5.5.24-1.el6.x86_64.rpm.

You should of course schedule a maintenance window if the server is handling any production traffic as removing the libraries may cause errors before the new ones are installed.

Later you should also think about replacing the server and client packages to the official ones too to avoid having builds from different vendors.
