You'll also need the binutils from unstable.  etch->lenny is making what
appears to be a bidirectionally-incompatible change in the hash table format
used in ELF objects, so you need matching glibc and binutils from the same

I've voiced concerns about this, but so far no one has anything smoother
than "document it in the release notes, and maybe make glibc conflict with
old binutils".
