Looks as if we need a misc/compat8x

I rebuilt the installed ports on my build machine under stable/8
yesterday (as there are no other machinies for which it builds that run
stable/7 any more).

No surprises when I updated local mirrors overnight or built today's

But then I rebooted under head (different slice), and found that
screen(1) needed libutil.so.8, and sudo(1) need both that and libz.so.5.

I copied the requisite libraries to /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg from the
stable/8 slice, and so far, things appear back to normal.

I expect that a "real" compat8x port might need a few more libraries --
my build machine has a rather small number of installed ports....
