Is this from aptitude? Don't install the binary package, just the
*source* (apt-get source). Then modify the dependencies, to create a
package that will build and run on Squeeze. We're betting on the
possibility that these are not really *required* dependencies and that
an older version of the xserver will do as well.
Also have you thought about upgrading to Wheezy? It's a well documented
process, but there pros (newer software) and cons (instability, bugs -
but not too many).
It is also possible to upgrade just the xserver. There are two steps.
a) Add wheezy to /etc/apt/sources.list
b) Add as many packages from wheezy as are required to
/etc/apt/preferences and forbid the rest (in the same file). See:
$ man apt_preferences
