Any package which depends on elf-x11r6lib is buggy -- if there is
no bug report filed already, you should file one (see 
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/). There probably is though, I filed a bunch
of them a few months back and others may have done the same.

I suspect that xlib6 or a predecessor of it would have provided
elf-x11r6lib when it was a current virtual package. It isn't now though,
so xlib6/xlib6g don't provide it.
