The thread in the gnu.org list seems the most promising. The thread in
the debian list seemed to die without published solution. I decided to
investigate further my case following the gnu.org list, and here is what
I found:

user@site:~$ locate rgb.txt


user@site:~$ ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 16 2005-11-01 20:11 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt
-> /etc/X11/rgb.txt

(a symlink)


user@site:~$ ls /etc/X11/rgb.txt
ls: /etc/X11/rgb.txt: No such file or directory

(that points nowhere)

Besides, my xorg.conf has no reference to that file

user@site:~$ ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf
user@site:~$ grep rgb /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Can someone with working emacs check and see if they have this file 
in their systems (sid)? Any other ideas?

Thank you all
