Addendum, you now need to install both libc5 and libc6 FROM HAMM on the
same dpkg -i line. This may (read probably will) require removing a whole
load of -dev packages, including libc5-dev (if you use dselect to
uninstall libc5-dev, it should catch the rest of them in conflict
resolution). I'll also be happy to mail you a copy of a script that is
being developed to do the core upgrade, but it will probably require
access to a mountable hamm mirror (assuming I don't manage to build the
fix kit by the time you read this).
