I will probably upload a set of glibc 2.1 packages for i386 to experimental as soon as I consult with the rest of the glibc team. The biggest problem with this is it will break all C++ code on the system due to the different libstdc++ ABI.

Some of our ports need to use glibc 2.1, so it should be a simple matter to build net-tools with IPv6 support for those architectures.
