2.0.7u-5 had a bug and every package compiled against it (there are several in 
slink) fail when run on hamm, another glibc Linux or 2.0.7u-6. Now that 
2.0.7u-6 (which fixes the bug) is in the master (it stayed in Incoming for one 
week, which was a good time for tests), this will happen often.

Either you wait for the updated packages (but it will be hard to reinstall without apt or dselect...) or you recompile the source packages (you'll need to be root, "fakeroot" is one of the victims). Here is my list (YMMV) of problematic packages. Should I file a bug for them?


apt compiles fine (you need xpm-dev):

fakeroot make -i -f debian/rules binary-arch

(-i because apt needs jade with is broken)
