When we started we had the /lib64 -> /lib link in base-files as
patch. Recently the /lib64 link has been added to debians glibc
package and we had to remove it from base-files to avoid conflicts.
For this move (base-files -> libc6) to work without self destructing
the system some extra infos in the control file are needed, included
in the libc6 patch.
Now that everyone has upgraded they are no longer needed and I plan to
downgrade libc6 instead of maintaining a now useless patch. (Unless a
new glibc upload beats me to it).

But you need the kernel-image and linux-kernel-di packages in sarge
first for it to build a CD.
