Where is this "incoming?"  Is it accessible to everybody, or is it on

	Me too!  I have some sample output below... you can see that ldconfig,
at least, recognizes that some libs go with libc5 and others with
libc6.  However, (also below) ldd tries to link EVERYTHING with
libc6!!!  I can't figure out what setting I could possible modify to fix
	Actually, I upgraded in kind of a wierd fashion.... installed from a CD
that had (I believe) the base-system tarball from 1.3.  Thats not very
good...  But I managed to get it to work my installing things with
'force' :)  I know this probably is very unaesthetic.... but I still
don't understand why ldd doesn't work.  If all the binaries are right
and ld.so.conf is corrct, the WHAT ELSE IS LEFT THAT CAN FAIL?  Is there
some environment variable that I need to set?
