Thanks for the help. That command (by root) apparently failed:
$ apt-get install libc6-i386
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package libc6-i386
So I installed libc6-i386 (and libc6-amd64 for no particular reason)
using "aptitude", which is how I've been installing things so far.

I've only used "aptitude" (which I suppose uses debs), but I'm
guessing that "realplayer" isn't free enough for Debian and thus isn't
supported by "aptitude", so I was running Real's installer gizmo that
came with a realplayer RPM.
So my next question is how to get libstdc++.so.5 from an official
Debian site, or must I go looking for it in the wild. I couldn't find
it (as "libc5" or such) using "aptitude".
