The (old, 1.6 versions of the) shared libraries should be in /usr/lib.

Running native, but older, binaries of the same object type (i.e. ELF), is
not handled by the "emulation for foreign OS" methods in NetBSD. All you need
to do is install (or just keep) the old libraries in /usr/lib or /usr/pkg/lib
and add COMPAT_16 to your kernel config file. You don't need /emul for this
case at all.
