not if i want to build a libc5 version of a package to fix some bugs (so
it can go to bo-updates, or make it available somewhere). these packages
are designed for people running bo systems without libc6, and so they
should not depend on libc6.

altdev is designed to produce binaries, that can run on bo systems.
if i use the new xlib6 binary and produce a binary with altdev, it
depends on xlib6 (>=3.3-5). that means to install this binary, bo isn't
enough : a user needs the newest xlib6 version from unstable.

thanks, i will try that (or compile my own fakeroot and link it static :-)
