I had something similar.

I tried simply installing a new X packge by hand with dpkg; at least
that told me what the problem was (some dependency wasn't fulfilled,

Do you have xserver-common installed. for example? Also try installing
xlib6g by hand.  You might even try reverting to dselect for once :-)
