You're wrong about libc6 conflicting with libc5:
blp:/raid/home/blp$ dpkg -s libc6
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Helmut Geyer <Helmut.Geyer@iwr.uni-heidelberg.de>
Pre-Depends: ldso (>= 1.8.10-1)
Conflicts: libpthread0 (<= 0.5-10)
Description: The GNU C library version 2 (run-time files).
Includes shared libraries needed to run programs.
However, libc6-dev and libc5-dev conflict. Your programs shouldn't
depend on these, however; only development libraries should.
