PLEASE - I really need help


Like i've said before, upgrading from bo to hamm broke my X. Namely evrything
that is  in xbase does not work. THat means xinit, xterm , startx, xauth, etc.

When I try to run any of these programms i get the following:

xterm: error in loading shared libraries
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6: undefined symbol: _Xglobal_lock

I've looked into this library and :

12:01:57 mjnf neptuno# ld /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; not setting start address
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6: undefined reference to `_Xglobal_lock'
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6: undefined reference to `_XUnlockMutex_fn'
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6: undefined reference to `_XLockMutex_fn'

and ...

12:02:43 mjnf neptuno# ldd /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libX11.so.6 (0x40010000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x400ae000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00000000)

I've tryed to reinstall all the packages without success. 

On an act of dispair of tryed to hand compile the thing (i thing i messed up
because i ended up compiling the entire xfree stuff!HUGE), but in the end
(after several hours of compilation) it didn't work. I noticed during the
compilation of XF86Setup that it said something about needing tk4.1 well :

12:03:01 mjnf neptuno# dpkg -l | grep tk
ii  tk40            4.0p3-5        The Tk toolkit for TCL and X11 v4.0 - Run-Ti
ii  tk41            4.1p1-2        The Tk toolkit for TCL and X11 v4.1 - Run-Ti

So am i missing something! Is there Hope for me! PLEASE just anwser me even if
it is to tell me that i can shoot myself in the head!

Any aditional info that you need just ask i'll give it to you (well ... not any
kind ... i'm not ready yet to give you my root password )...

Thanks (I eagerly await your awnsers)
