Someone who wants to install xlib6g must first upgrade xlib6 to at
least version 3.3-5.  This is because xlib6 3.3-5 moves the
libc5-based library files out of the way so that xlib6g can install in
/usr/X11R6/lib.  There is no real conflict between the two packages,
the Conflicts entry is used to enforce this upgrade path.

There used to be a bug (I have no idea where) that caused packages
compiled with xlib6g to also have a dependency on xlib6.  All these
packages need to be updated.
