missing "/etc/X11/rgb.txt" file and broken link to it

It seems the file /etc/X11/rgb.txt is not present after the installation of Xubuntu 8.10 x86_64.
More over, the symbolic link /usr/share/
The link is created by the package x11-common, but the file /etc/X11/rgb.txt appears to be included in no package.
Here is my configuration :
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 8.10
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Ubuntu Core Developers <email address hidden>
Is it possible to include the file /etc/X11/rgb.txt as it lists all the avaible keyword for corresponding color in X11.
The bug affect several application such as :
- xcolors (totally broken)
- giftrans (totally broken)
- gcolor2 (loosing preferences)
- git (only in gui mode)
- vnc4server (obsolete ?)
- sng (Failed to build from source / FTBFS)
- old xorg.conf from Hardy or previous version (see RgbPath problems)
This bugs must have a *medium* importance, not less, as explained in bug report #304567 (mark as duplicate) :

Temporary solution, is to download rgb.txt file and copy it into the folder /etc/X11 by sudo.

The broken link from /usr/share/
This link wasn't created since Jaunty.
However, the missing file /etc/X11/rgb.txt is still a problem on both Intrepid and Jaunty.
