No.  Hate to tell you this, but it's Debian policy now.  See attached.

Then I'de have to put the headers back in, and then I have to worry about
ppl using it, and keeping this hack in libc6 for even longer. Please test
the libdb2 packages. They should be able to read db 1.85 databases. Either
way, it isn't a bug in glibc, this change occured upstream, and I am only
going to add the backward compat runtime support, not a compilation
environment.
