After waiting, I went ahead and did a dist-upgrade. It couldn't 
automatically complete - I am somehow stuck with a slightly older 
version of x11-common that can't be upgraded or configured. No matter 
what I try, it barfs out because the include symlink is not right. 
Perhaps I'll file a bug against package x11-common.

dpkg reports a Failed 6.9.0.dfsg1-6 version of x11-common installed. I 
am not certain exactly how it got put there, as reportbug indicates 
there is a new version 7.0.22 available. But I can't seem to get it 
installed because of the same errors occur whether I try to install 
x11-common or install xorg - they occur at the same point.

I'm gonna file a bug anyway.
