apt-get error installing xlibs 4.2.1-14, apt-get won't work at all now

Okay, I have a problem now with apt-get...

I think the problem would be fairly easy to solve if I could just get around one other problem.

There are all sorts of dependancy problems, but they should all get worked out if I can just get apt-get -f install to run all the way through...

The error happens when it is unnpacking xlibs:

unable to create './usr/X11R6/lib/': No such file or directory
I'm not sure why it wouldn't be able to create a file...

Any suggestions?
