1.1 upg & libc - long

Over the last few days, I have upgraded a (work) machine from
0.93r6 to 1.1 beta using Dale Scheetz's manual dpkg instructions.
All went smoothly except for libc4. I upgraded dpkg from aout to
elf & tried again with the results below. Any ideas ?
nb - After above, i patched the 1.2.13 kernel to elf, recompiled and
rebooted ok... From memory, /lib contains the libc4 contents as expected.

dpkg: considering removing libc in favour of libc4 ...
libc is not properly installed - ignoring any dependencies on it.
dpkg: yes, will remove libc in favour of libc4.
