rgb.txt missing in Jaunty

Description

Programs which want to look at the rgb database (like, say, "showrgb") get to go cry in a corner because it's missing. This has been the case since Intrepid.

It vanished from upstream Xorg as part of the whole "you don't get to configure your X server anymore" campaign, but plenty of applications still want it.

It's finally back in Karmic as part of x11-common, but we might want to still care about Jaunty. The Ubuntu bug is marked as "fixed" despite the fact that it's not.
