I just did a quick check of my system and have at least four permutations of 
this file:  identical copies in /etc/X11 and /usr/X11R6/lib/X11; another 
installed by StarOffice and yet another installed by latex2html.  the ones in 
/etc/X11 and /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 are installed by xfree86-common per the 
debian package search page.

perhaps reinstall xfree86-common?

hope this helps
