The ELF hints file is built by sbin/ldconfig/elfhints.c, which is very
particular about the files in the search path it will include - for
example, in /usr/local/lib, libslang.so.1.2.2 is built by the slang port,
but no link under the name libslang.so.1 is present.
It is intentional that the ELF ldconfig ignores libraries with more
than one version number. The problem you're seeing is simply caused
by the fact that the libslang port hasn't been updated yet for ELF.
