Yes, download the version of libc5 (and libc5-dev) from
ftp://ftp.gate.net/pub/users/storm/ and downgrade to that. Then put libc5
and such on hold in dselect so they don't get upgraded again until you're
ready. You will experience utmp/wtmp corruption that way, but at least
stuff will compile for you.
