I don't know how to do that.

In the meantime I emailed the package maintainer @ Opera.

I got the following response:

"I'd been given to understand that Dapper Drake is using xorg-7 and
that we should depend on libxmu6 instead of the xlib6g package.
(All the other bits of X library we need are pulled in by libqt's
dependencies.)  Have I been mis-informed ?

For the 9.0 beta releases we're using libxmu6: we haven't done a
re-pack of 8.54 (the latest desktop officially released), but I've
forwarded your request to those who're responsible for deciding
whether we should do a re-pack."

Are you saying you've submitted is package somewhere for public consumption?
