xftp seems to depend on both the libc5-based and libc6-based versions
of the X libs. One of Dirk Eddelbuettel's packages had the same
problem. I don't know what caused it (probably a bug in the
dependency list rather than the actual binaries), but recompiling
seems to fix it. I'd guess it was a problem with the shlibs file of
earlier xlib6 releases, or some interaction with fakeroot and xaw3d.
(I vaguely remember seeing shlibs-related fixes for the latter two).
I just checked my /var/lib/dpkg/available, and I see that the packages
xshogi, xemacs20, xfaces, and xgammon have the same problem.

Is it a matter of time, or will there never be a libc6 umsdos?
I prefer to keep my list complete, but I can put a comment like
"Waiting for upstream release" next to it.
