Well, that didn't quite do it, but it probably pushed me in the right
direction.  Here's what I did.  Probably not entirely kosher, but it
appears to have gotten the job done:

dpkg -P --force-all gcc-3.0-sparc64
dpkg -r libc6-sparc64-dev
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install libc6-sparc64-dev

libc6-sparc64-dev requires gcc-3.0-sparc64, which is why I had to remove
it.  After that, the upgrade went fine, and I re-installed the other stuff.
