There are still cases where it matters, e.g. copying your own binaries
from a 5.0 machine to a 5.1 machine, sharing /usr/local/bin, etc.
Can adequately compatible versions of these libs be built from the
right version of the corresponding stuff in pkgsrc? That would allow
setting up a compat package without too much hassle. (Maybe, perhaps
modulo lossage in x11-links.)
