The problem was an upload mishap because the glibc for the alpha and
that for the i386 were being handled separately.  For the moment you
can find the correct libs at ftp://debian.med.miami.edu/pub/mdorman.

I'm actively working (compiling as we speak) with David Engel on
producing a consolidated package that won't have these upload problems

Gaak.  Critical Path!

Actually, I've been working with kernel-package, and I know what needs
to be done (a couple of changes to the creation process---already done
but not fully tested---and a new postinst for the alpha), just need
the time to do it.  I should be able to get it hacked together in a
couple of days.

I guess it'll soon be time to find another spare disk to glom on to
the UDB so I can bench test the install, huh?
