Actually, I don't think this would be too difficult.  The "build-old" and
"install-old" rules (for the libc5-compat packages), practically do the
same thing already.

But don't hold your breath.  The are more urgent things in my X queue right

Besides, I've just dropped enough of a clue that an experienced
Makefile/rules could probably hack out some rules for this in a brief
amount of time.  I'd be happy to incorporate such a change.
