I don't remove the old libc and I'm not going to do that. It will
be moved away from /usr/lib into /usr/lib/compat or so, but not yet.
If you install a new world, you don't have the old libs, which means
you can't simply use e.g. gobsd's packages. That's what the compat
package is meant for. This is the same way as FreeBSD handles it BTW.
