I can tell you right off that linking libraries to older versions is
just a plain bad idea.
I have no Highpoint card but I'll bet that you want
/usr/ports/misc/compat5x port installed to find the real versions of the
libraries that you faked up with your links. libncurses.so.5 is
clearly listed in the packing list for that port.
And don't forget to read the pkg-message which tells you about the
kernel option you need to do this.
