Hmm...I'm running unstable here - there are 2 different sawfish
packages - sawfish, and sawfish-gnome.
I would assume that you could set your deb-src entry in sources.list
to point at unstable, download and build the source deb on your potato
machine with something similar to:
apt-get --build source sawfish
...and then dpkg -i the resulting deb file. You may need to fetch
some dependencies (I'm not sure what you'd need - I believe there's a
build-deps argument you can give to apt, but I'm unsure of it off the
top of my head) but in theory it should work.
