I managed to get it installed properly by doing this:

i still hope that branden robinson, who opened up a bug ticket (http://lists.debian.org/debian-x/2004/debian-x-200403/msg00833.html), will come up with a solution to that problem pretty soon. but so far nothing has really moved on those list concerning this issue.

Follow the bug ticket http://bugs.debian.org/237509, not the mailing list
thread. Each entry to the bug ticket will become its own mailing list
thread, because of the way the two interact.

Where it says:

If you move (or remove) /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft1.h and
/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft to /tmp/, you can do apt-get -f install
to finally upgrade this package.

Hope that help someone for waiting.
