If I remember correctly the compats were installed by default in earlier versions weren't they?

Mine has libc.so.5. No wonder the app is failing, it specifically wants .4 and is too dumb to work with anything newer. I'm getting real frustrated with this again, I'd like to move away from MS but it's not easy to do when the apps I need don't even work properly.You could fake it out with a symlink, but the Real Solution may be to rebuild whatever that file is part of, which I assume means a buildworld.
No -- don't do that. Shlib version numbers are changed for a reason.
Instead either install the misc/compat4x port or else set COMPAT4X=yes in /etc/make.conf and rebuild your world. This will let you run apps compiled for 4.x on a 5.x system.
I'm only running 4.9: I assume you're on 5.x if you have a higher file number?
Yes -- for libc the shlib version number is the same as the major version number of the OS.
