I'll try to make mention of it.  However, it is policy that the newer
libfoog package should conflict with old versions of libfoo that put their
libraries in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib/libc5-compat.  Any package that
doesn't do this has a bug.  In addition, the both packages are installed
at the same time, you'll get the right thing even if it does complain
about overwrites, and most other libraries can stand to be broken for a
few minutes.
