I can't really help with uninstalling, since I don't know anything about debian packages. Normally MyDSL packages aren't recommended on a traditional harddrive install, but that may be the easiest way to get X running again. Otherwise, you'd either need to manually copy the original X files from a DSL iso or reinstall your system.
You really did go overboard with this, though. Fluxbox can be upgraded without the need for anything else. The trick is to compile it yourself. DSL doesn't have some libraries that are enabled by default in Fluxbox, so they will need to be disabled. Do "configure --help|less" to see what options there are to configure.
If I remember correctly, the following works on DSL with gcc1-with-libs (you can compile it in RAM from a liveCD if you don't want to install the gcc package permanently):
./configure --disable-kde --disable-gnome --disable-xft --disable-randr
