Thanks for the advice. I don't see anything in there.

pauljohn@pjlap-124:dpkg$ pwd
pauljohn@pjlap-124:dpkg$ grep -r libc *

Those files are empty

pauljohn@pjlap-124:dpkg$ cat shlibs.default
# dpkg shlibs defaults file
# This file contains shlibs entries that are used as a last resort when
# no matching entries are found elsewhere.  For more information see the
# dpkg-shlibdeps(1) manual page.
# <library name>        <version/soname>        <dependencies>
pauljohn@pjlap-124:dpkg$ cat shlibs.override
# dpkg shlibs override file
# Entries in this file will override all others, only use if you
# are really sure that is what you want!
