   Am I right in assuming that this is an upgrade from 0.93 to 1.1 ?
   I can't think of another reason that libc5 would not be installed.

I don't have a log of what happened, so take this with a grain of salt, but my
impression was that ld.so and libc5 both existed, but were going to be
updated, and it was the update that didn't work correctly.

In particular, I believe I started with a set of buzz-fixed boot disks, and
then installed rex packages on the system.  I'm assuming that ld.so or libc5
has been updated since the buzz-fixed disks were last cut.
