The package "xnview" which has the conflicting file doesn't seem to
exist anywhere in Debian -- I can't find it at packages.debian.org or
with apt-cache. Where did you get it from?
In libxt6, the file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults is a symlink to the
directory /etc/X11/app-defaults. It isn't clear to me why the xnview
package also contains /usr/.../app-defaults; instead it probably should
contain an /etc/X11/app-defaults directory and whatever files it needs
under there. You should inform the people who provided the xnview
package of the problem.
