X works, the Debian packaging is not ready, I am going to fix this.

I run X last year, and posted instructions on how to install it.
The X 3.3.6 packages (libs and servers) are on alpha.gnu.org, apt-able.
The X 4.0 packages are at http://master.debian.org/~brinkmd/
(actually in a subdirectory, you can find it easily from there).

The Hurd package contains mouse and kbd translator since half a year or so.
glibc has not anything to do with it, really.
