Your kino package was built before the libtool naming scheme was
changed (or "fixed", as I like to call it), and all the required
revisions were bumped at that time.  Looks like you have a mixture of
packages in your system.

That's ok, since 2.6 is binary-compatible with 2.4; in fact, it is
compatible with any previous 2.x version.  (Our is set
to 2.4 because, by the time it was updated, we were still using the
old naming scheme, thus the library name changed.)
