I agree re: the CVS bloat issue... *but* we can always remove it
later. Right now I think it's more important to maintain continuity
between the old and new libs.

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: libc.so.4-20050414 libc.so.4-20050501 libm.so.2-20050414 libncurses.so.5-200504014


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.
