FYI, I just uploaded both dpkg and glibc. The glibc is patched with your
"test" patch (see BTS, glibc bugs), rather than the original lchown()
patch that you sent. It seemed to work well, so I uploaded the glibc
versions. After installing the glibc stuff, dpkg compiled properly and
recognised the existance of lchown(), so it was compiled pristine :-)
Thanks for the work on that!
