Yes, probably libc6-dev.

Are you, by any chance, running a mixture of testing and unstable?  It
seems like you have sources for one version, and another version
installed.  Explicitly tell apt which version you want to install (or
download and dpkg -i the right version).  man apt-get for details -
look for the -t switch, but do some general reading while you're there -
there's a lot of useful stuff in it.
