After a period of deafening silence on this point, I backupped whatever
data I had on my Alpha that was important, and reinstalled.

BTW, Loic Prylli's boot-floppies stuff that's on
http://lhpca.univ-lyon1.fr/axp/debian.html (the stuff generated on
98/07/04) looks good!  All that's really missing is installing MILO on
the hard disk...

Anyway, after reinstalling, everything is working again, _with_ the
libc6.1_2.0.7r-5 /lib/ld-2.0.7.so...  It's a mystery to me what the
problem was. I'd checksummed the obvious stuff, and it all looked fine.
Oh well.
