Okay, yes, you're right.  Unfortunately we've built a bunch of
binaries against our broken libc, so it will all have to be rebuilt,
because all binaries expect to see GLIBC_2.0 and GLIBC_2.1 versions.

But I guess this is the right thing to do, since we really do not want
any of the compatibility cruft bloating our libc.

HP people note: Yes it looks like we have to rebuild everything.  I
think I can get things up again rather quickly, as I just need to
build a static toolchain and then relink all the packages that are
sitting around built on my A180.  We will have to clear out the
archive in pehc:/pub/debian-hppa though.

I am not very pleased with symbol versioning at the moment :(
