FYI: I had previously upgraded from Maverick -> Natty
I experienced the issue when upgrading from Natty -> Oneric

I manually did the following:

sudo mv /var/run/* /run/
sudo mv /var/lock/* /run/lock/
sudo rmdir /var/run
sudo rmdir /var/lock
sudo ln -s /run /var/run
sudo ln -s /run/lock /var/lock

I rebooted, and X still does not start! Most of the boot process looks ok, except for the following errors:

rpcbind: Cannot open '/var/run/rpcbind/rpcbind.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)
rpcbind: Cannot open '/var/run/rpcbind/portmap.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)
