Some packages, like xbase, couldn't be installed because I did not download lib6gdev. (I didn't think I needed it when I downloaded all the files at the Web site, just the basic ones to get some decent resolutions.)

Should I just quit now, and not worry about the other stuff? Is it possible that an X upgrade doesn't entail upgrading all the X packages at the Branden Web site?

The xservers only depend on xserver-common to be 3.3.4.  You should be
fine with leaving the rest as is.
