There are a couple of options:
1. Do not remove old (5.4) libraries. All 5.4 libs wil still be found.
2. Remove old libraries and install ports/misc/compat5x. All 5.4 lib wil
still be found.
3. Remove old libraries and use /etc/libmap.conf to map the old libs on
the new ones.
4. Recompile every port, so all dependencies are the 6.0 libs.
