Perhaps your installation is not good? I have 1.4.2 installed as well, and it seems to exist fine:
Prelude> :m Graphics.X11.Xlib.Extras
Prelude Graphics.X11.Xlib.Extras> :t setKeyEvent
setKeyEvent :: Graphics.X11.Xlib.Event.XEventPtr
-> IO ()
gwern at craft:20746~>ghc-pkg list X11 [ 4:41PM]
(I suppose it's possible things were changed after the version was changed to 1.4.2, but the cabal version hasn't been bumped; I'd try installing from darcs <http://darcs.haskell.org/X11> and seeing whether it changes.)
