I still not able to compile libc.
So I try a trick. I use alien from debmake package
to convert libc-5.3-12.rpm from redhat into a .deb
Some hacks and everything seems to went well.
I install libc-5.3-12.deb on my machine, without any crash
or unfunctionality. There are someone who want to try
You can find it, with some other .deb packages for
sparc that I haven't try, via anonymous ftp
sorry but I'm not able to put it on master.debian.org,
because my connection is too slow
thanks very much
