libc6 issues and libpam-ldap

I was wondering if someone can maybe provide the list with some sort of concise
summary of what exactly all of these issues are that keep popping up with libc6
on amd64.  I have personally seen lots of issues, and I keep seeing people
posting dependencies questions that have to do with libc6.

The one that I am currently running into is that while trying to install
libpam-ldap on some amd64 etch machines today, I got the following unmet
dependency error for libc6:

$ apt-get install libpam-ldap
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libpam-ldap: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1) but 2.3.2.ds1-22 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

I originally thought this was an issue with libpam-ldap, but the libpam-ldap
maintainer says that this is an issue for the amd64 maintainers.  Is libpam-ldap
supposed to be a newer version than it is?  

What exactly is going on here?
