Please do not do such thing. If binary version of package depends on 
outdated version of library, rebuild this package from source. If source 
version of package is incompatible with newer version of library, patch 
it or link it statically with older version of library.

If it worked earlier, it should continue to work without additional 
hacks. If it is linked against GLU, add "glu" to package dependencies.

Use ldd to check, which libraries stuff is linked against.
