this may be a problem. it has to remove all the -dev etc packages in order
to install libc5 and libc6....it can't install the new dpkg until that is
a buzz system won't be able to do the --get-selections.
unfortunately, you can't use 'dpkg -l' because it truncates the
package name to fit on the 80 column width....which is why i used
--get-selections in the first place (the output is also easier to process)
