Looks like you need to add
deb http://people.debian.org/~mmagallo/packages/xfree86/ i386/

to you /etc/apt/sources.list
then do:
# apt-get update

You can fin out more my reading the sources.list man page or the
apt-get howto:
# apt-get install apt-howto-en
then look at



Debian testing/unstable
Linux twofish 2.6.0-test8-looxt93c i686 GNU/Linux
