problems with libc6, libc6-dev, locales

I'm trying to update my system and can't resolve a problem with
libc6-dev, libc6 and locales interacting. libc6 won't configure
because it conflicts with the current locales, and locales won't
upgrade because it has overlapping files with libc6.

apt-get -f install won't resolve it; when locales is upgraded, Iget

Preparing to replace locales 2.1.2-9 (using locales_2.1.2-13_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement locales ...
dpkg: error processing locales_2.1.2-13_i386.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/man/man1/localedef.1.gz', which is also in package libc6
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Argh.. help!!
