The problem was that having libc5(-dev) and xlib6 (the X libc5
compatability library installed would cause dpkg to think that any
normal X application compiled used the libc5 libraries, and write that
into the shlibs depends. Now it's almost a moot point since I hear
that today or tomorrow a new release of dpkg will fix this.
