You shouldn't have to.

You could try

	deb http://www.edlug.ed.ac.uk/Mirrors/Debian potato cpbotha

If that doesn't work, download the 'dists' directory with all
subdirectories to /some/path and try

        deb file:/some/path potato cpbotha

As for the xlib6g problem, 'libxaw6' from the above server replaces
xlib6g. I can't remember having any problem with dependencies on
xfree86-common, but I can't check now. If you can't get it to work with
these tips, let me know and I will try to reinstall X 4.0.1 at home.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
