Bug#45423: dpkg: dpkg conflicts with lder libc

Package: dpkg
Severity: critical

dpkg should depend on a recent libc, since it uses versioned link information 
that are nly present in the newer libc. Installing dpkg without first
updating libc breaks (all?) binaries in the dpkg package.

Please add a depends to the current libc before too many systems go down
because of this.

May the Source be with you.
