I do get the following message from dpkg:
 /tmp/debian>dpkg --install --auto-deconfigure libc5-dev_5.4.7-6.deb      
 (Reading database ... 25826 files and directories currently installed.)
 Preparing to replace libc5-dev 5.4.7-6 (using libc5-dev_5.4.7-6.deb) ...
 Unpacking replacement libc5-dev ...
 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libc5-dev:
  libc5-dev depends on libc5 (= 5.4.7-6); however:
   Version of libc5 on system is 5.4.7-7.

  dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

 Any help?
