Thus spoke Andrew Benton:

That file is installed:

root at gwaihir:~# ls -l /usr/include/X11/XprintUtil/
total 12
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 11095 Mar 17 01:01 xprintutil.h

but somehow it can't even be found by find:

root at gwaihir:~# find / -name 'xprintutil.h'
find: /proc/4219/task: No such file or directory
find: /proc/4219/fd: No such file or directory

I installed Xorg-6.8.0 before, and now I'm trying to upgrade to Xorg-7.0.0.
I'll try removing the whole /usr/X11R6 stuff and then installing
Xorg-7.0.0 (and probably reinstalling everything that needs X). Probably
the presence of the old files messed everything up.

I just don't like when I get errors like that, because it indicates that
there could be many more problems coming up.
