Version 7.0.16 of x11-common depends on xfree86-common, which is a
"useless" compatibility package. Making things worse is that
xfree86-common conflicts with x11-common. This prevents x11-common from
being installed at all.

I screwed this up. It installs fine if I do it right.

So your assessment is that there's no bug here?  What way did you do it
first that was "wrong", btw?

Right, I don't think there's really a bug here. What I did wrong, was to try to install them "by hand" with dpkg, and not to notice that I was dealing with a Pre-Depends rather than an ordinary Depends. In any case, I can't reproduce it at all installing it with apt-get.
