portsclean complaining

Hey all, hope you can help me here... I decided to do a 'portsclean -L' and
it gave me this:

** /usr/local/lib/compat/libncurses.so.5 is shadowed by
        /usr/local/lib/libncurses.so.5  <- ncurses-5.5_1
        /usr/local/lib/compat/libncurses.so.5   <- compat5x-i386-
 --> Two packages install the same library in different directories!

** Clean out /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg manually on occasions.
** Try using libchk(1) (sysutils/libchk) to find out unreferenced libraries.

Now, is that a bad thing? If not, then why is it bitching about it.
