    I agree re: the CVS bloat issue... *but* we can always remove it

how about this:

COMPAT_LIBS=	c.4 c_r.4 ncurses.5 m.2		# whatever

LATEST_LIBS=	# empty
. for lib in ${COMPAT_LIBS}
LATEST_${lib}!=	ls -r lib${lib:S/./.so./}* | head -n 1
. endfor
. for lib in ${LATEST_LIBS}
	install ${lib} /usr/lib/compat/${lib:C/-[[:digit:]]*$//}
. endfor
with files there:

As you can see, libc has two files. the older one can easily be removed 
from cvs (repomeister stuff), as the makefile will always pick up the 
newer one. bloat doesn't increase.
