Yes, but I'm not sure we're complete. I think the compat4x bits are
designed to amend existing i386 libraries and only include those
that had a version bump. On ia64 we would then not have those that
did not have a version bump.
I think it's better to make it a port. That way it's more easily
shared with amd64 (if applicable).
