It is something that should automatically get done correctly as long as
the libc-dev package defines the minimum version that way.
The mechanism that determines this is in /var/lib/dpkg/info/libc6.shlibs.
Currently this has lines like:
libc 6 libc6 (>= 2.9)
It's virtually certain that the shlibs file will be updated to read
'(>= 2.10)' when the glibc maintainers switch to that version.
