Problem: upgrade to hamm from CD with APT

	I upgraded to hamm from a Debian 2.0 beta using apt the other day
and everything WORKS ok BUT I am getting dependency problems with dselect.
If I run "apt-get update" I get a message that the system integrety is ok.
But I was attempting to install kernel 2.0.34 using dselect and I
discovered the following dependency problem:

A number of important packages (gcc, glut3, dpkg-dev, alien, kernel 2.0.34 
etc) all recommend (if not require) libc-dev.  This appears to provided by
libc5-dev or libc6-dev.  I assume I want libc6-dev?!

However,  whenever I select libc6-dev in deselect it gives me a dependency
error with libc6!  The corresponding error with apt-get dselect-upgrade is
the following: 
Updating package status cache...done
Checking system integrity...ok
Sorry, but the following packages are broken - this means they have unmet
  libc6-dev: Depends:libc6


AND if I dont select libc6-dev then dselect unmarks alien, rpm, gcc ,etc!

This is definitely a vicous circle!

Has anyone else had these problems? The apt-get -f dist-upgrade went 
pretty much ok- it kicked me out near the very end without installing
imagemagick4g but I used dpkg for this and everything else seems ok.

Thanks for any insight
