The libc6-dbg package has a problem. A simple test:

$ cat t.c
int main () { return 0; }
$ gcc -pg -o t t.c -lc_p
$ ./t
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
$ gcc -static -pg -o t t.c -lc_p
$ ./t
$ exit

I've traced the problem to __environ == 0x0 in the init routine when using
-lc_p.  However I'm not certain why that's occuring (weak symbol in -lc_p
being overridden perhaps?). As you can see, using -static prevents the
core dump but I can hardly build the applications I was to test this way.
