libdb2 in the archive is not compatible with the glibc 2.1. It doesn't use
versioning (as it's not part of glibc, the GLIBC_2.0 tags are not there).
The same goes for apache, php4 (have to check php3), sendmail, dhelp ...
I'd say everything depending on libdb2.

Obviously the only rational solution to your problem is suicide.
