we bumped the libc version to 5, but we didn't make compat4 libaries
available for installation yet.

I'll renew my annoyance with the fact that we just bumped this without
even figuring out why things broke or if we could change them in a way
to save functionality without having to bump the version number[1]. We also
never propogated this bump to RELENG_4, so the release shipped with the
worst of both worlds.

To answer your question, though:

        I'd suggest just symlinking libc.so.4 to libc.so.5, nothing terrible
should happen. This should work until we get our act together regarding
this change.

1. to my knowledge. I tried to keep up on this thread but its possible
someone figure it out and we just didn't revert the libc bump.
