You need to pin the package you want to install from backports.org and all of
its dependencies that cannot be satisfied from Etch. In some cases this might
be a pretty high number of packages, thus you might want to use

  aptitude/apt-get install -t etch-backports <package>

This will install <package> and all of its dependencies which are available on
backports.org from backports.org. If you just want a minimal set of
dependencies installed from backports.org, you might want to install the
package from stable first and then upgrade to the version in backports.org:

  aptitude/apt-get install <package>
  aptitude/apt-get install -t etch-backports <package>
