Thank you very much for your work!

I pointed a gcc-3.4 machine that hasn't been updated in a few months
to your archive, and started by trying to install libc6, which
resulted in this:

	Unpacking replacement libc6 ...
	dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.3.2.ds1-20_amd64.deb (--unpack):
	 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib64', which is also in package base-files
	Errors were encountered while processing:
	E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

My /usr/lib* looks like this:

	% ls -ld /usr/lib*
	drwxr-xr-x  37 root root 12288 Feb 15 10:26 /usr/lib/
	lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root     3 Jan  3  2001 /usr/lib64 -> lib/

Do I need to replace /usr/lib64 with a real directory, or is there
something else obviously wrong?

Many thanks,

Pete Harlan
