I've tried to fix perl-tk for hamm (compatible with perl 5.004 and
compiled with libc6), but I haven't had any success yet. The problem
with the version you have is it's compiled for the previous perl
version. I can get the new pacakge to build, but it segfaults at "use
Tk;" every time. I've sort of convinced myself it might be a problem
with the mixed (libc5/libc6) X package, but it's a guess. I'll be
trying again when a fully libc6 version of the X pacakges comes out
Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience
