installing 'private' shared libraries and NAMELINK_SKIP

I've just been troubleshooting an issue between KDE 3 and KDE 4, where kmail 3
refuses to start because while looking for the unversioned
/opt/kde3/lib/libkmailprivate.so, ld.so encounters the namelink for kmail 4's
libkmailprivate in /usr/lib/libkmailprivate.so.
While this is mostly an artifact of naive design choices from the KDE 3 era,
is it safe for me to add NAMELINK_SKIP to the install() for the KDE 4
libkmailprivate.so? Since this is a 'private' lib, nothing should be using
the installed namelink to link against.
