The following solutions are currently available from

dpkg --unpack xserver-xfree86_4.0.1-6_i386.deb &&
  lynx -source http://togo.dhs.org/debian/xserver-xfree86.postinst.diff |
    patch -p0 -d /var/lib/dpkg/info &&
  dpkg --configure --pending

edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/xserver-xfree86.templates and remove the
"'s" after the word "server" on line 11.

dpkg-preconfigure --frontend=text --priority=low /var/cache/apt/archives/xserver-xfree86_4.0.1-6_i386.deb

Applying at least all of them seems to work for all people. See
also bugs 77565, 77566, 77568, 77589, and 77592.
