Why would downgrading libc6 break your box? If programs required a
spcecific version then they'll get uninstalled when you downgrade. I've
downgraded glibc many times (but I no longer have any fear of glibc :)

All those are required target architecture headers. Work with it long
enough and you'll recognize them...
If you are going to do development work you should probably run:
apt-get install build-essential
Methinks that this gets installed normally depending on what you chose
p.s. Nice email address.
