Isn't that what the Debian package "conflicts" and "requires" settings are
for? If I compile Apache against libc5 and then replace libc5 with libc6,
Apache's going to break until I recompile, right? However, the Debian
packaging system safely navigated us through that migration... so I don't
see why it wouldn't work here.
