Re: Proposed recompilation to remove dependency on libc6 2.0.7u
Since I lost two disks I had to re-install one of my machines. I
installed hamm, then upgraded to slink using dpkg-multiftp.
I had to call [I]nstall twice (maybe thrice, I made some mistake)
to get everything installed. The packages containing a pre-dependency
on libc were only installled by the second run.
This is acceptable. I don't see a reason for re-compiling packages
to get rid of a versioned libc dependency.
Let's call it an accidental feature. --Larry Wall
