Did you install the program using dselect?  Just this week I installed
Acrobat Reader 3.02 on my Debian box and dselect took care the
dependecies which included a number of older version 5 runtime C libs
and libXt for X linked to the libc5 versions.

Of course, if the program you're trying to install doesn't come in a
.deb archive, then you'll have to do a bit more work.  You can install
runtime versions of libc5 with dselect that your program should be
able to use.  You may need to do some extra work like starting the
program through a shell script that sets up environment variables that
point it to the older libs as your standard and, etc.
are links to the libc6 versions, a.k.a. glibc 2.07 on Slink, a.k.a.
Debian 2.1.
