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/libncurses.so && ln -s ../../lib/libncurses.so.5 \
	/usr/lib/libncurses.so 
rm /lib/libcurses.so && ln -s libncurses.so /usr/lib/libcurses.so 
rm /lib/libform.so && ln -s ../../lib/libform.so.5 /usr/lib/libform.so 
rm /lib/libpanel.so && ln -s ../../lib/libpanel.so.5 /usr/lib/libpanel.so 
rm /lib/libmenu.so && ln -s ../../lib/libmenu.so.5 /usr/lib/libmenu.so 

And adding to Bzip2:
rm /lib/libbz2.so && ln -s ../../lib/libbz2.so.1.0 /usr/lib/libbz2.so

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.
