There was a problem with dependencies in the initial packaging of XFree86
3.2.  I think there was created a dummy package, xdependencies, which was
supposed to fix this.  If you cannot find/obtain this package anywhere, you
may have to get hold of a later version of the X packages.

If it's the same one I'm thinking of, see my reply to their post for a
solution to this (basically get the xcompat package).
