As mentioned, if this file have ever been manually editted,
dpkg-reconfigure will no longer modify it unless you follow the steps at
the top of the file. (I really think it's a bug in dpkg-reconfigure to
leave the file alone without any indication, but I've never filed on
it.) I such a situation, either make the manual edits, or do the steps
at the top of the file and then rerun dpkg-reconfigure.

Also, if you're running Testing or Sid, it might be that you've
inadvertently upgraded to X.org, in which case XF86Config-4 is
irrelevant anyway; you should be looking at xorg.conf.
