The only thing in the scripts is this:

    [EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ cat /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000.compat4x.sh
    /sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib/compat

    [EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ cat /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000.compat5x.sh
    /sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib/compat

Why  they  have  to  both  be present, I haven't figured that out yet.
ldconfig points both at the same location.
