My packages simply have been taken from wheezy, then I changed the abi
and xserver-xorg dependencies, since they are not documented, and the
AMD website says the latest fglrx works in old versions of Xorg, and I
believe it should.

Unfortunately, I have exceeded my traffic limit, and 3G provider has
reduced my speed to 128kbps download, and to about 40kbps upload until
the 1st of July, and uploading the .orig.* file will take too many
hours, but it is exactly the one downloaded from wheezy (with the same
md5sum), since it doesn't get modified by the packaging scripts: 

These have been modified indeed:

Thank you and best regards!
