ncurses libraries

I'm following the LFS 6.2 book, and I'm currently doing 6.18.1,
ncurses. There is something I find a bit strange here.

After installing the package with "make install", some libraries are
moved with "mv -v /usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5* /lib". A symlink is
recreated because it points to a non existing file. "ln -sfv
../../lib/libncursesw.so.5 /usr/lib/libncursesw.so".

But there is another symlink also pointing at the same non-existing file:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       18 2007-07-20 19:46 libcursesw.so ->
libncursesw.so.5.5

So, at the end of the instructions, when executing "echo
"INPUT(-lncursesw)" >/usr/lib/libcursesw.so ", the
/usr/lib/libncursesw.so.5.5 is recreated. Is this intentional?
