Courtesy of apt in #debian:
set up x is, like, To set up X in woody, sarge or sid, "apt-get
install discover read-edid mdetect && dpkg --force-depends -P
xserver-xfree86 && apt-get install xserver-xfree86" (or
x-window-system-core instead of xserver-xfree86 if you don't
have it yet)
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 will allow you to reconfigure X, but
will not re-detect the hardware; you must purge/reinstall
xserver-xfree86 to accomplish this.
