problem with new (unstable) xlibs

I posted this message to the user maillist, but didn't get any answers

----- Forwarded message from "John L . Fjellstad" <john-list@fjellstad.org> -----
I just did an update yesterday, and xlibs won't upgrade.
Basically it fails when it tries to update app-default. I included
my log of what happens if it helps.

What should I do to make X working again?

PS. Don't know if it makes any difference, but I'm running Linux 2.4.1
