What that's saying is that files that weren't being installed before,
are being installed now, so action is needed from the packager.

You need to copy debian/MANIFEST.i386.new to debian/MANIFEST.i386, and
add the new files to debian/<packagename>.files (or
debian/<packagename>.files.i386, if debian/<packagename>.files doesn't
exist). Then, run debian/rules binary, and you should get the files you
need. The libraries should go into the 'xlibs' package, while the
headers/etc should go into xlibs-dev.

Good luck!
