% ldd -v =bc
ldd: version 1.9.2
        libreadline.so.2 => /lib/libreadline.so.2 (0x4000f000)
        libncurses.so.3.4 => /lib/libncurses.so.3.4 (0x40030000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40075000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

So you _do_ need the /lib/libreadline.so.2 link.  bc in unstable is a
libc6 program, so it shouldn't be concerned with what is in the
libc5-compat directories.

% dpkg -S libreadline.so.2
libreadline2: /lib/libc5-compat/libreadline.so.2
libreadlineg2: /lib/libreadline.so.2.1
libreadline2: /lib/libc5-compat/libreadline.so.2.0
libreadline2: /lib/libc5-compat/libreadline.so.2.1
libreadlineg2: /lib/libreadline.so.2

Is libreadlineg2 still installed properly after your problems with it?
