Slink to potate upgrade

I have one very simple question (?!): how safe is to upgrade now from
slink to potato on debian/sparc? 

I tried to do it at the end of march, with many problems. In more detail,
after upgrading the kernel to kernel-image-2.2.14-sun4cdm and installing
libc6, I have fallen in a "Conflicts/Pre-depends loop" related to
perl-base and libdb2, which I have not been able to fix.  I have thus
reverted to a plain slink installation. 

Afterwards, I have read the Ben's e-mails suggesting not to install the
latest libc6 and libstd++2.10. However, I have not understood yet whether
this has been fixed and whether it is somehow related to the problems I

Thanks for the help
