Eradicating packages depending on old libs...

It's almost done.

I've recompiled (almost) all of these packages.

Um, this one's in binary-all.  I think it's safe.

Most of these are not going to be in the proper place until Guy Maor
gets back from vacation (Monday, I think), because they require one
bit of magic or another that the automated process isn't aware of.

If you don't have access to master's incoming directory, you can find
a mirror in debian.med.miami.edu:/debian/private/project/Incoming.

Maybe I'll see if he can put a back door in the installer such that we
can have these automatically taken care of in the future.

I now need to recompile sudo, which got linked against libcrypt.so.1
instead of libcrypt.so.1.1, and then we'll be totally libc6.1.  I also
want to recompile libg++, which has a bogus dependency on libc5 at the
moment.  It will then be necessary to recompile groff and a couple of
other things.

This weekend I'll try and take a look at the installation disks.
Pasi, do you have your hacked tools available anywhere I could get to
them, or could you make them available?  I want to try building the
disks on my system, since I have a working reboot and so forth, to see
if I can get something that works from end-to-end.
