IMHO it depends on where compat libraries come from.  If it comes from
a part of distribution, /usr/lib/compat is good, and if it comes from
ports (or packages), ${LOCALDIR}/lib/compat would be better.

Since 6-current have no /usr/src/lib/compat, ${LOCALDIR}/lib/compat is
enough for me.

Speaking about 'compat libs,' how do we supply older libraries that is
in /lib?  Make a directory /lib/compat (or whereever in /), or ...?
