In fact this is all a non-issue. I have a fully hamm system and the only
thing I need to do is to comment out their " sh ./check_shields.sh"
which is the one that really creates a problem. (Isn't it true that 
libc6 actually follows debians way of handling the includes?)

Once you do this is done, this thing works like a charm. I never bothered
to check what exactly in the check_shields.sh fails but can do it if needed.
