I did use it regularly and never encountered a problem except some
unmet dependencies which should be fewer by now.
Right now there seems to be a problem with the ftp site so ftp install
probably isn't an option until tomorrow ;-)

With regard to libc6: every recent libc6 should be fine (I use
2.0.7pre1-1 because I didn't upgrade recently). About compilers I'm not
so sure what is the best option. I used this one for a couple of uploads:
alf:[~]> dpkg -s gcc
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Galen Hazelwood <email@example.com>
Source: egcs (1.0.1-1.3)
I stayed away from C++ code because of the libstdc++ issues. Galen
did a new compiler upload a few days ago (gcc 2.7.2..., g++ and g77 from
egcs). I hope this compromise will be sufficient for us, too.
Perhaps Chris could comment ?

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
(Henry David Thoreau)
