libc6-dev package conflicts with /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h

I'm interested in trying out Synth of Noise ( see http://code.google.com/p/noisesmith-linux-audio/). It has a simple usage; launch make in the source directory and then launch the program executable in the same directory. Very straightforward in my Debian system with rt-patched kernel, at least. However in 64Studio 3.0 Beta it's a different ball game. Even installing gcc crashes with an unsolved dependency - the error message says that "the package libc6-dev tries to overwrite file /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h. .etc" and gcc is left unconfigured - and unusable, any version of gcc. So - "no make makes me a dull boy." I think this is a result of Ubuntu as a base for 64Studio 3.0. Debian for example doesn't use sudo by default - a policy I much prefer. Ubuntu has a problem with attending to the needs of advanced users. Neglecting the need to solve errors in installing GCC is a major problem. It's to me like the Canonical team is thinking "well, at least the desktop and wireless net works - pheww.. we'll deal with the rest some day.." So, please, could it be possible to go back to the true and Tested Debian base? Or is there a way to solve this issue otherwise?
