Well, you should never "unzip" (and probably untar) the libc5 files
yourself. Always use "dpkg" or "dselect" for that: they will remmeber
where the files went so that you can uninstall the packages, and they
will mark the "libc5" package as "installed". Still, I wonder how
you can unzip the debian libc5, as it's in ".deb" format. So, I
guess you didn't get the debian libc5 (did the filename end with .deb?).

To get recent debian packagres, ftp to ftp.debian.org (or on one to
it's mirrors)

You mean, dpkg/dselect complaining that libc5 is not installed?
That was expected.
