The Package is called xlib. Why dont you simply use dselect with the ftp
method for that? It will prompt you for all the dependencies.

You may be able to replace some installed Programs (like the X-Server) with
new 3.2 binaries. But if you arent experienced with X11
Administration/Installation youshould not do that.

No. You will need to copy those files by hand. This will probably produce a
broken setup and dpkg will be unable to upgrade. Simply wait a few days if
youneed 3.2, and it will be available as a debian package. But if youonly
want to get it work, thaen just install the xlib with deselect.
