I think you need to read the Debian libc5 to libc6 Mini-HOWTO posting which
appears every week or so on this list, thanks to Scott Ellis.  You need to 
complete the process of installing libc6.  This involves upgrading several
libc5-compatible libraries so that they can co-exist with libc6.

6.2.1, compiled with libc6 headers.  I'm hoping to upload a Debian package of 
it tomorrow; it's being tested now.

Fixed, thanks.  (I never got the mail, but I had a whole lot of trouble with
mail a couple of days back and lost a whole chunk down a black hole.)
