The specific list of library version number bumps is this (also available

    /lib/libm.so.2 -> libm.so.3
    /lib/libreadline.so.4 -> libreadline.so.5
    /usr/lib/libhistory.so.4 -> libhistory.so.5
    /usr/lib/libopie.so.2 -> libopie.so.3
    /usr/lib/libpcap.so.2 -> libpcap.so.3

We specifically did not arrange for anything to remove the old
versions of the libraries - that is something best left to you folks
to determine when you want it done.  At the point the old libraries
are removed any ports or other programs you have compiled that are not
part of the base system will break.  They will need to be recompiled
to pick up references to the new library versions.  But it is best if
these libraries get removed at some point if you expect to be running
4.X executables and want to pick up the 4.10 libraries from compat
(which are not there yet but will be soon).  Use your judgement on
when to remove the old libraries.
