You would have to recompile (actually for re-link) your programs with 
the current shared libraries to have it works again.

On the hacker side, you could make a symbolic link from 
libImath-2_1.so.11 to libImath.so ... and hope it stays compatible 
accross minor.

(but it does not work for libjpeg6 vs libjpeg8 nor for libpng )
