libc6 on debian x86

I updated libc on our debian (sid) systems to version 2.3.2-6 and namd
doesn't run anymore, there are problems with libnss_compat, which was
changed in this version.

I was wondering if there will be binaries available that work with the
new library, or if I need to compile my own.

The error was as follows:
$ charmrun ++local /opt/bin/namd2.5b2
