xserver-xfree86 fiasco!

Hi list,
after a recent dist-upgrade, there was some kind of installation error
which I tried to fix. After various attempts, I made things worse and
now I can not install xserver-xfree86.
This is the installation messages:
apt-get install xserver-xfree86

The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/5449kB of archives.
After unpacking 15.2MB of additional disk space will be used.
Preconfiguring packages ...
xserver-xfree86 failed to preconfigure, with exit status 64
(Reading database ... 87254 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking xserver-xfree86 (from .../xserver-xfree86_4.3.0.dfsg.1-1_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xserver-xfree86_4.3.0.dfsg.1-1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 64
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

It could be debconf, apt-get, dpkg, the package or some other thing.
Any hints or guesses?
