Bug#420667: libc6 breaks bash, renders all compiles unusable
Justification: breaks unrelated software
1. Upgrade -- balks at symlinks in /usr/lib, asks user to remove them. BAD
2. Once these removed, installs. Bash is now unusable--problem is in calls
from bashrc, bash.bashrc, et al. bash -norc, sh (not login) work.
3. The libc.so.6 synlink it kicked at is replaced. Reinstall will again
4. The other symlinks are needed by ld when building dependent programs!
5. Once replaced, builds procede but all built programs segfault.
