Okay, I can confirm that the libc-2.0.7.so file packed in the .deb will work, and
that the one linked to will not-- this may be my fault, however.  It seemed to
fix the problem with dpkg initially, but then, while trying to upgrade my
libstdc++2.9 to 60-1 from 58-5, I got,
dpkg: error processing libstdc++2.9_2.91.60-1.deb (--install):
 unable to chown backup symlink for 'usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.9': Function not
