Hamish (or anyone else who wants to play with buzz upgrades), try the
latest autoup.sh (v0.20) which i've just uploaded to my usual websites.
it's a first stab at upgrading libc5 (to latest hamm version) and dpkg
(to bo dpkg version 188.8.131.52) before doing anything else.
please note: this is completely untested. hopefully it won't break
upgrades from rex or bo.
