Bug#2187: libc4

Package: libc
Version: 4.6.27-11

Installing libc4 after installing libdb1 removes the new elf libdb1 shared
libraries.  (resulting in /usr/bin/perl not working amongst other things)

The following code segment is the culprit.

# Remove leftover from old libc package.
cd /usr/lib
rm -f libdb.so.*

I suggest only doing this after checking that libdb1 isn't installed
first. (or alternatively, if "file" is installed, removing it only if it is
an a.out shared library)
