it seems like libsnmp-perl *is* in debian etch, lenny and sid:

libsnmp-perl | 5.2.3-7etch2 |        stable 
libsnmp-perl | 5.4.1~dfsg-6 |       testing 
libsnmp-perl | 5.4.1~dfsg-6 |      unstable 

is there something wrong with the version in etch?

i heartily agree with jonas here- probably easiest to build an etch CD
and adding custom package versions for the few packages you need.

much easier to build and maintain the few customizations you're making
than it is to make an entire distro based on versions of software that
were never part of a stable release.

live well,

p.s. please do not CC me, i read the list.
