I haven't seen much trouble with the rest, but my way of handling the above
was to take the entire shared library complement from 4.x and load it in a
"compat" directory, then add that to the ldconfig set.
I am still running a whole host of application binaries (indeed, probably
80% of them) on 4.x code.
No problems so far.
