libxft-dev install issue.

HI all. I did up system update but its seems that there is a a problem with 
the package libxft-dev.

I get this error when I run apt-get 
Preparing to replace libxft-dev 2.1.2-5 
(using .../libxft-dev_2.1.2-6_i386.deb) ...
diversion of /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h 
to /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft1.h by libxft-dev
Removing `diversion of /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft/Xft.h

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I was just wondering if anyone else has had this trouble and what they did to 
fix it. 
I hear there is a fix, but google did not seem to know about it.
