That was a bug in libc4-4.6.27-14. It was fixed in the -15 version
(and up ofcourse) and that is what should be on the FTP sites. If
it is not, your mirror lags behind. What is also possible is that
more than one version is present - dpkg tries to install them in
the order it finds them, I think. Delete all but the newest versions
of any .deb file you have.
