error upgrading libc6-dev on sparc


I got this on my sparc, but I'm not sure if it's a sparc only
problem. When upgrading to recent unstable, using apt, it got to
unpacking libc6-dev, where dpkg died with a Bus error. I'm not sure
whether this is a bug in libc6-dev or in dpkg, so I don't know which
package to bug report, which is why I'm sending it here.

These are the last lines of the dpkg -D7777 output when installing
libc6-dev_2.2-10. dpkg version is

D000010: tarobject ti->Name=`./usr/lib/libutil.so' Mode=120777 owner=0.0 Type=50

This leaved libc6-dev in a not properly installed state, so I can't
upgrade or install other things either. At least not with apt-get.
