I just tried this: I had to backport the following packages as well to
fullfill aptitude's build-deps:
ikiwiki (cwidget build fails with ikiwiki from etch, even though the
build-deps don't state a certain version)
After that, aptitude built alright, is installable and seems to work. If
nobody beats me to it, I can prepare a proper backport over the easter
Also, I'll file a bug regarding cwidget's build-deps.
