[PLUG] Debian and X config

I'm trying to configure X on a Debian testing box with a new monitor.
I've tried xdebconfigurator, but it wants detect which I can't figure
out how to install.

    $ apt-file -i search bin/detect

Meanwhile, xf86config is supposed to be in xbase-clients according to
apt-file, but dpkg -L says no.  And xf86setup doesn't exist at all,
says apt-file.

Anyone know how this is supposed to work in the Debian world these
days?  Or what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks much.
