  I think this is perfect.
  I recently went through *exactly* this with libpng (which went to
2.0). After the upgrade (via binary package compiled on another machine) my
mtr on my notebook didn't work anymore. 
  I solved it by copying an appropriate libpng (1.0) to /usr/pkg/lib, but
this would do the trick very well!!!
