Oh, missed that.   I know the compat libraries in the source tree from 
before the
4.8 tag have the right things.

I've not done a binary upgrade, so I don't know.

If you can pull the source tree, and cd /usr/src/lib/compat/compat3x.i386

and type

make install
make clean

you should be fine.

As to why the binary upgrade didn't upgrade, I'm not sure.
