Re: libc6

Someone messed up with the libc5 in the latest stable.  It conflicts with
libc6 for no reason, if you install libc6 with --force-conflicts it should
work fine.  You could also install the latest libc5 from unstable instead
(better alternative if you intend to upgrade completely to unstable), but
that is likely to force you down the altgcc/libc5-altdev path if you want
to be able to compile libc5 stuff.
