Bug#323032: libc6: GLIBC_PRIVATE errors

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-22
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

fakeroot debian/rules binary
/usr/bin/make: relocation error: /lib/libdl.so.2: symbol _dl_catch_error, version GLIBC_PRIVATE not defined in file ld.so.1 with link time reference
zsh: 8307 exit 127   fakeroot debian/rules binary

this is a follow-up to 321561 and 321712. if i allow the upgrade to
happen, i can't even run make, or perl, or crond, or anything at all in
fact. please fix this.

when i run strings on the library (libc6 so file) i see the "GLIBC_PRIVATE" string.
isn't this supposed to work, like the previous libc6 major change (like
the woody->sarge one)? perl pukes in such a way that the locale gets all
confused, and cannot load properly, and the locales package install
fails, if libc6 2.3.5 is installed.

i haven't been able to upgrade for days and days, and this worries me
because there are security issues involved here.

i would also like a clarification on what's going on, being in the dark
isn't helping anything, either.
