Dpkg-shlibdeps and libc5/6
Uhoh, looks like dpkg-shlibdeps is a real mess with -dev and -altdev
Many libc6 library packages provide two shlibs files (one with the
libc6 package, the other with the libc5 compatbility package).
The result is a mess when using dpkg-shlibdeps.
I suggest that libc5 packages still provide .shlibs file and libc6
library packages provide .shlibs6 (or the other way around).
Then we could patch dpkg-shlibdeps to search for .shlibs packages
when there is at least a dependency on libc5 and .shlibs6 when
there's a dependency on libc6.
What do the others think ?
Obviously, it will break if an executable or library is not linked
with libc5 or libc6. But I still haven't see one... :-)
