That last bit is good info, thanks.

According to the "pkg-plist", that particular port
(devel/glib12) directly accounts for the last two of the four
files I'd made links for, and "x11-toolkits/gtk12" accounts for
the first two.

As I understand it, all that has to happen is for the newer
Libtool configuration to revise all of its relevant library
information.  Once that's done, it's done and no artificial
links will be necessary.

The links I made were a crude shortcut to the process, and maybe
I should not have posted with it, but for the record it does
