AFAIK you can install both the libc5 and the libc6 runtime packages on the
same machine; however, libc5-dev and libc6-dev cannot be installed
Some ways that might deal with this:
- keep both at hand as .deb files, and install the one you need
- fiddle with unpacking libc6-dev in /usr/local (dpkg-deb), and use modified
PATH when compiling. This approach was taken in the a.out->ELF (libc4 ->
libc5) transition for test compiles.
- chroot()ed environment for libc6 development.
