installing coriander removes xserver

Hi. I'm starting with debian lenny with 2.6.26 kernel running fine. I need to use the new firewire stack for my stereo cameras, so I configured a 2.6.32 kernel and rebooted and everything runs fine. To get video from the cameras, I type: apt-get install coriander, which gives an extremely long list of packages to remove, including all my xserver packages. Tried it once, and sure enough xserver is gone and can't be fixed. Why?? I also tried compiling coriander from source, and it requires libgnomeui2, and when I apt-get install that, the same thing happens (removing xserver). How can I get around this? Is this just a version problem that will go away soon? Perhaps there is a different video program that would work.
