Hopefully, this is much less a concern with 7->8 transition,
because our libc, libpthread and libm have symbol versions. I expect
that these three libraries will not get the bump when 8 is going to
be released. Probably, libutil may be exempt from the bump too.

On the other hand, most if not all other system libraries are not
converted to versioned symbols. I am not sure whether the full ports
rebuild is actually needed.
