Just to nitpick, we don't provide an optimized libc:
glibc (2.2.2-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Disable building of optimized libs for now. I did not forsee the
problems involved with symbol skew between ld-linux.so.2 and the
optmized libc.so.6. As of now, I can see no way around this.
* Make libc6 conflict with the optimized libs for now, so we can get rid
of them, closes: #90753, #90758, #90763, #90770, #90778, #90779
