If these user-made custom binaries were installed in /[s]bin, I think we
can assume the user/sysadmin is capable of coping any needed .so's from
/usr/lib/compat to /lib.  In fact, this custom binary may easily had a
.so usage for a lib we have in /usr/lib vs. /lib because none of the
stock /[s]bin binaries need it.  So the user/sysadmin has already had to
deal with the issue by hand.
