This is xlib6g

This is in libc5

When you do [U]pdate in dselect, it downloads some Packages files (if you
use ftp method, they are in /var/lib/dpkg/methods/ftp). You should be able
to search those files to find the package which contains any of the files
installed by Debian (except possibly for configuration files which are
created by installation scripts).
