The info seems dated. unsit functionality has, apparently, been
incorporated into macunpack. Unfortunately, there's are bugs filed
against the package
that indicate that it doesn't handle at least one of the newer
compression algorithms used in a "sit" archive. I can't believe
there's not something out there to do this, but, at the very least, I
think you'll have to look outside Debian to find such a utility.
So you can try macunpack, which is in macutils, but if it fails you'll
have to hunt further. That, or tell the person who sent it to you to
use Zip or something for which there are Linux utilities.
