WordPerfect8 on Debian/Sid ?

I haven't used WordPerfect8 from Corel in a while and just discovered
that it no longer runs on my Debian/Sid system.  I think it is because
it requires the previous version of the libc package (woody).  I have
copied these files (found by ldd on wordperfect executable) form a
working Woody system, but libc comes first in the library search.

If I place all the files in /usr/local/lib, then export
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib, it picks up all but libc.  Here is the
present ldd

fea::/home/fea/tmp/: ldd /commercial/wordperfect8.0/wpbin/xwp
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x4001e000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x4006f000)
        libXpm.so.4 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4 (0x40136000)
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x40145000)
        libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x4014e000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x4020b000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x40214000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4022b000)
        libdl.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40359000)
        ld-linux.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x4035c000)
/commercial/wordperfect8.0/wpbin/xwp: can't resolve symbol

I would like to set up a wrapper script that sets up these variables
temporarily just to run wordperfect.  How do I do that ?
