If you've mirrored the Packages.gz file as well, then add a line to
/etc/apt/sources.list pointing at that directory like this (assuming
you've put them in /home/username/debian/xfree-update):

deb file:/home/username/debian xfree-update/

(The / at the end is important.)

After you've done that, 'apt-get update', and then 'apt-get upgrade'.
'apt-get install xbase' would probably also do the job instead of
upgrade, but I'm not sure exactly what the "recommended" way is.
