As you upgrade the ports they will link against the new verson of the
libraries, once you're certain you dont need them any more you can just
pkg_delete the compat6x package. You can use something like pkg_libchk
from the sysutils/bsdadminscripts to look check whats still compiled
againt the compat libs.
