I had this problem because of various xlib6 entries in
/etc/dpkg/shlibs.default. I changed them to things like this:

libPEX5 6       xlib6g

and all now works properly (thanks to Herbert Xu!). I think it was a Xaw3d
problem - I have both xaw3d and xaw3dg installed (looking at it, xaw3dg
replaces and provides xaw3d so I should get rid of xaw3d - maybe this will
fix the problem "properly").
