I did a portupgrade to the new version. It ended with:

===>  Cleaning for compat5x-i386-
--->  Cleaning out obsolete shared libraries
[Updating the pkgdb <format:bdb_btree> in /var/db/pkg ... - 787 packages 
found (-0 +1) . done]
Operation not permitted - /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/libc.so.5
Operation not permitted - /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/libc_r.so.5
Operation not permitted - /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/libcrypt.so.2
Operation not permitted - /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/libpthread.so.1
Operation not permitted - /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/libthr.so.1

I do not know what was not permitted. portupgrade did backup the shared 
libs with their schg flag. Whatever should have happened then...

I guess since nothing has changed with the libs, I can safely removed 
everything from /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/ that came from this update 
(pam_*.so.2, snmp_*.so.2, and the files mentioned in the error message). 
Is that correct?

BTW: Creating a compat5x-i386- package with pkg_create, 
removing it, and readding it all went without error messages.
