I like the opt/oldlibraries idea. It would take me a bit of time to actually go and get all of these. Why wouln't it work do you think?

Because these old libraries likely depend on other old libraries which depend on other old libraries which depend on other old libraries. By the time you've tracked them all down you've basically copied your old PC over your new one.

And if they don't depend on old libraries, they probably should and are likely to crash instead of working, requiring you to track down the broken programs to override individually.
