xlib6g and unstable

I need to be able to install xlib6g on a debian unstable.

apt-get install xlib6g
gives me:
apt-get install xlib6g
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely 
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  xlib6g: Depends: xlibs but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

The package xlib6g exist in stable (yes I have added stable as well 
in /etc/apt/sources.list). The package description is here:

So it's a trick package to be able to install old debian 2.2 X 
packages on debian 3.0. So now I wan't to be able to do this on 
unstable as well. It did work with XFree86 3.2, but after upgradig to 
XFree86 3.3 it stopped working.

Any other mailinglist that migth have to right people to answer this?
