The libc5-dev in hamm has a very specific purpose, to provide a
libc5-dev/libc5 combo that can coexist with libc6 for those people who
don't want to upgrade their entire compilation environment. Unfortuantly
the version created and updated is missing the "Conflicts/Provides:
libc-dev" that is standard for libc-dev packages. When that is added, the
package should coexist fine.
