Slightly less bad, but still likely to be forgotten. One also has to
assume that if the folks who write the shared lib chose to bump the
version number it was for a good reason. That's not always true, but
it's true more often than it is not.
A better suggestion would be to do this:
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg
mv libgettextpo.so.4 and libintl.so.8 /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg/
Then go about rebuilding your ports in an orderly manner until those
libraries are no longer needed, at which point you can delete them.
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
