I still have some X 4.0.2 debs and X 4.1.0 debs built against potato, the
4.1.0 pre1v1.3 debs work ifne on potato but depend oon the new debhlper or
somehting, i got around this by force installing them and then editing the
dpkg status file to change their dependacnies so apt would still work.

AFAIR the 4.0.2 debs had a r128 driver that failed on my laptop (pismo) and I
was using a module I hhad hand compiled from 4.0.1 sources with that X install
at the time AFAIR.

I no longer use either set of debs as I upgraded to unstable, however I can
put them up somewhere for download if necessary.
