I'd just rpm -ivh libvorbis-<new.version> and use
Failing that grit my teeth and go for a --force
That may sound like an inelegant solution - and it is,
but its worked for me many times when I've needed
several versions of the same package (usually with
xmms components also as it happens).
I wouldnt recommend the --force switch with anything too vital
such as glibc or whatever - you can end up with a right
mess by forcing packages on... use sparingly!
Its hard to believe rpm still needs nasty workarounds for
something that is really very straightforward.

It'll tell you libvorbis is already installed.
