yeah, I uploaded a libc6 version yesterday. Somehow (magically), libc6 now
shows up in the ldd of the library too. I didn't fix that by hand, so dunno
how that got there. :-)

Something else I've ben wondering about is if I ned something like a
newxtawg package that is libc6, and keep a nextaw that is libc5. I really
hope not. I've noticed that libc5 programs work ok with the new libc6
nextaw, but I guess this may not be a good idea.
