Yes, you can do a partial upgrade - see the libc6 upgrade 
insrutctions that are periodically posted to the list.

Or, you might prefer to rebuild the libgtk1 package under libc5.

FWIW, I was able to compile SANE on my system running 'unstable'
with no problems.  Works great with my HP ScanJet 4c.

I may do a package someday, but I am over-committed already.
