I haven't used WordPerfect8 from Corel in a while and just discovered

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

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

/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 ?

I have the WP8 .deb package which depends on libc5, and which is available in Sid & Testing. The depends that is no longer avaialble is xlib6g, which has been replaced by libxaw6, libxaw6-dbg, & xlibs. I installed these but there are not recognized as the replacement for xlib6g.

Checkout equivs:

 This is a dummy package which can be used to create Debian
 packages which only contain dependency information.
 This way, you can make the Debian package management
 system believe that equivalents to packages which other
 packages do depend on are actually installed.
