>(in /usr/lib and /lib) to suggest for removal. Something to consider...
- normal binaries (like /usr/bin/vi, for instance) will link against
/usr/lib/libc.so, not /lib/libc.so.
- only those binaries in / partition (/sbin/ping) will link against
/lib/libc.so, not /usr/lib/libc.so.
am i correct?
even if /usr/lib/libc.so is a symlink, i think the above is an
important point. think of shlib major bump (in libtermcap or whatever)
and old binaries in /usr/pkg/bin.
