There are two db2 problems: one is an upgrade ordering problem,
which is fixed by apt-get install'ing libc6 and db2 before anything
else (especially perl).  The other is a compatibility problem with
libdb.so.3 which is (was) a symlink to libdb2.so.something, and evidently
shouldn't've been. Both these have been fixed recently, and are currently
being built for all arches.
