Re: libc5 dependency change proposal

I agree with Christoph here.  The libc5.shlibs could be changed to
something like this:

libc	5	libc5 (>=5.4)
libm	5	libc5 (>=5.4)

The version number should only be changed when the library interface
changes, ie - when the major or minor version number changes.  Smaller
version changes do not change the interface.  All libraries should
follow this rule.
