Yes, it referrs to compat4x libraries. Not an issue for me, since I'm
upgrading from 5.2.1 to RELENG_5.
Regarding libmap, yes I have used it before. Basically, I'm looking
for advice from people who have done this particular upgrade. Its an
upgrade that should be straightforward. I was only wondering if there
were any extra little gotchas that I should consider.
Thanks for all the replies so far.
