What is the convention for problems like the following?

I have 2 projects ('A' & 'B'). 'B' is compiled against symbols from
'A'. I have a rpm for 'A' and another rpm for 'B'.

Now, 'A' & 'B' are installed. I change some symbols in 'A', recreate
A.rpm and install the new version of 'A'. When I run 'B' (which was
compiled against the old version of 'A'), it fails because 'A' has

The question is: how can I enforce that with rpm? What is the
convention for such cases?
