I assume the colorchanging is done using X calls, using the X libs. But
earlier you wrote that you're parsing the X server output to get the
timings, so it would have to depend on either "xserver" or
"xserver-xfree86", depending on whether it only works with
xserver-xfree86 or with the xfree 3 packages too.
