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
