According to Ian Jackson's suggestions, which worked for me, the dpkg 
upgrade should go BEFORE the ld.so upgrade, like this:

   dpkg --install dpkg-V.deb
   dpkg --install ld.so-V.deb
   dpkg --remove libc

(dpkg won't actually remove libc until the next step ...)

   dpkg --install --auto-deconfigure libc4-V.deb

(dpkg replaces libc with libc4.)

   dpkg --install libc5

And then on to the rest.

Hope this helps,
