Hrm, when you get a working fakeroot I can install glibc2.1 on saens and
you guys can start testing things out without wrecking your home systems..
But it is pretty useless without a working fakeroot :<

Does APT order this installation correctly if you ask it to simply install
ibc6.1? We definately should try to get the dependencys/conflicts worked
out from the start!

Hmm, I belive the latest 0.1 series fixed a small segfault on the alphas,
not sure. 0.3.2 should hit incoming soon which I know works on the alpha,
I did lots and lots of testing on saens.
