Actually not necessarily. The xlib6g package name was phased out (because it
was way obsolete), but the libraries inside xlibs (the "new" package name)
may still support your old PhotoPaint.
Try it with dpkg --force-depends first, and if it works, fetch the xlib6g
package from woody (or build one yourself with equivs) and the dependency
chain will be okay.
