The ones i've noticed have all depended on xpm4.7, which depends on
libc5. "apt-get --compile source foobar" seems to create a package
without that dependency, at least as long as xpm4.7 isn't installed on
my machine.

Of course, the proper fix is to file a bug so the maintainer can fix it
for everyone. But check the BTS first and make sure someone hasn't
beaten you to it!
