You can backport the package yourself:
1) download the .tar.gz, the .diff.gz and the .dsc
2) dpkg-source -x file.dsc
3) go into the dir
4) dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

If dependency problems arise and you don't want to pollute your system  
installing those packages, replace step 4 with:
4a) debuild -S -sa
4b) sudo pbuilder build ../file.dsc

But you need to have installed pbuilder and have run pbuilder create  
before 4b (pbuilder is an UML environment which downloads all the  
dependencies, builds the packages and stores them usually in  
/var/cache/pbuilder/result )
