	When either of the packages emul/compar12 or emul/compat13 are
	installed they will change some symbolic links in /usr/lib.
	E.g. will no longer be linked to the latest version,
	but to an old version.
	This causes great confusion when building further software, e.g.,
	anything that uses libstdc++ (which many packages use).
	cd pkgsrc/emul/compat12; make install
	Change installation procedure
