apt-get strangeness



    Ok, I'm confused. I'm trying to install the C++ compiler. 

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  g++: Depends: libstdc++2.10-dev (>= 1:2.95.2-10) but it is not going to be
installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
lupus:~# apt-get install libstdc++2.10-dev
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libstdc++2.10-dev: Depends: libc6-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages

    So libstdc++2.10-dev depends on libc6-dev, but it is not going to be
installed?? Interesting, considering that it's already installed:

lupus:~# dpkg -l libc6-dev

ii  libc6-dev                     2.1.95-1                      GNU C Library:
Development Libraries and Header Fi

    So what's going on? How do I get this thing installed?

    Thanks,

    Mike
