So, what we wanted originally is remove all the *.so files from /lib and only 
have them in /usr/lib while leaving the .so.5 files in /lib

I'm going to change ncurses to add these lines (somewhat similar to the ones 
that orignally where there):

rm /lib/ && ln -s ../../lib/ \
rm /lib/ && ln -s /usr/lib/ 
rm /lib/ && ln -s ../../lib/ /usr/lib/ 
rm /lib/ && ln -s ../../lib/ /usr/lib/ 
rm /lib/ && ln -s ../../lib/ /usr/lib/ 

And adding to Bzip2:
rm /lib/ && ln -s ../../lib/ /usr/lib/

I'm going to do a quick test build (still got a full chapter 5 build here so i 
can start at chap6 and be quick about it). As soon as I get to Bash and bash 
links properly against ncurses then I'll release LFS-4. I'll do a quick test 
on shadow too.
