dump on a hamm system

File system dumps have started failing on me after a recent update of
packages on a hamm system.  I tried to re-build the dump package from
the sources but am caught on the dependencies.  I think I need
e2fslibs-dev which depends on comerr-dev and both these depend on
libc5-dev which is no longer available.

I would appreciate suggestions on how I can create a working dump program.

The behaviour of dump is

 519# type -a dump
 dump is /sbin/dump
 520# ldd /sbin/dump
	 libext2fs.so.2 => /lib/libext2fs.so.2 (0x40010000)
	 libcom_err.so.2 => /lib/libcom_err.so.2 (0x40020000)
	 libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40022000)
	 /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
	 libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x400c1000)
 521# dump 1f /dev/null /
   DUMP: Date of this level 1 dump: Thu Nov  6 10:06:42 1997
   DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: Thu Oct 23 15:24:58 1997
   DUMP: Dumping /dev/sda1 (/) to /dev/null
   DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
   DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
   DUMP: estimated 121815 tape blocks on 3.13 tape(s).
   DUMP: master/slave protocol botched - didn't get pid of next slave.
   DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

Sometimes the error message reports an interrupted system call.
