Yes, but that is the other way around: the libc6 nextaw is explicitly linked
against libc6 (-Wl,shared ... -lc) , and ld.so knows this (check with ldd on
the nextaw lib). In the case of libc5, the old nextaw, xaw3d and xaw95 are
not explicitly linked against libc5.

Yes. Install the xaw3d from stable (with --force-conflicts), put it in
/etc/ld.so.conf before the other xaws, ldconfig and ldd
/usr/X11R6/bin/xkeycaps.real : you'll see it resolves to the xaw3d
libXaw.so.6, which is for libc5.
