No I mean the debian/control file. In there, is a list of runtime and
build dependencies. The .dsc file will be regenerated when you build the
source to reflect the changes you made.

The dependencies issue you met is a check made by apt. It is possible
that the package dependencies do not reflect the real dependencies
(libraries etc) of the binaries, merely the versions available in Wheezy.
Also the Squeeze xserver is quite recent and it would be unexpected for
a video driver to not support it.

It is not too difficult, but it is not risk-free, and it's best to stick
to Stable, if you can, for this and other reasons.
Anyway, I will see if I can build a Squeeze package for you, but it will
take a few days.
