Sorry Christoph as I said above, dpkg -i <whatever> doesn't work.

But your tip on the libc problem got me looking and after a few ln -fs I had
them up and going, nearly.  Then I had to dpkg -x as whole stack of things
like perl, libgdb, grep, libdbl, libreadline, ncurses.

Now libc won't install (it's extracted) as it doesn't think dpkg is
installed as it came off a tar.gz file.  Back to it!
