	The suse_compat package doesn't handle the symlink: ->

	created in /emul/linux/usr/lib during a "make install".  I don't grok
	the rpm2pkg stuff, so I'm not sure where the problem lies.

	cd pkgsrc/emulators/suse_compat
	make install
	pkg_delete suse_compat
	ls /emul/linux/usr/lib/ # and see that it's there.

	This symlink should be created/removed with the appropriate @exec/
	@unexec lines in the PLIST.  It's apparently done correctly for the
	other shared libraries, but libncurses is slightly different in that is linked to both _and_  I would guess that rpm2pkg needs to by modified
	in some way.
