Yes, you're quite right. But unfortunately, it's not a panacea.

Remember the recent bumps to libintl which affected an insane number
(i.e. nearly all) of ports? Update just this port after upgrading, and
nearly all your existing ports are unusable and need to be recompiled
against libintl.so.8. Since misc/compat6x doesn't contain libintl.so.[765]
(it's not a system library), you'd still be out of luck.
