next time use LANG=C apt-get ...

There is no link there in the package and afaik never was. Did you
maybe create links yourself or is your filesystem corrupted?

I suggest you run fsck and if that doesn't turn up anything purge and
reinstall ia32-libs.

ia32-libs is build against testing packages to avoid uploading too
frequently or with buggy packages or packages that won't go into
stable. Since Xorg7 is still only partialy in testing we decided not
to upgrade the debs, not to mix X11R6 and X11R7 packages. That will
change at some point in the future.
