Before I do this, one question.  From looking at the package, the old
compat libraries get installed in ${PREFIX}/lib.  Under ELF, how will
old programs know to look in ${PREFIX}/lib for these libraries?

If this does indeed work (I haven't actually tested it), do you also
want a pull-up on the 1.4 branch?
