Initial glibc packages (source i386) uploaded

My initail glibc (aka libc6) packages have been uploaded to master.
At this point, they should be considered very experimental.  They
shouldn't trash your system if you install them, but you should expect
some minor problems.  If you aren't capable of handling small problems
yourself, you should probably wait until things stablize.

Until gcc can be packaged, you will have to manually do a
couple of things to be able to build binaries using glibc.  First, you
will need to copy the crtbegin*.o and crtend*.o files from libc5-dev.
Glibc expects gcc to provide these files.  Second, you will have to
specifiy the new dynamic linker by using the
'-Wl,-dynamic-linker,/lib/ld-linux.so.2' option when linking.  Gcc will do this automatically.

Finally, until the strategy for handling shared libraries using the
same soname for both libc5 and libc6 is finalized, I STRONGLY
discourage you from distributing packages using any shared libraries
not included with glibc.
