i am the current maintainer of gs-aladdin (since two weeks :)). 
I did not upload gs 3.33 and gs-aladdin 5.03 yes, since 
they depend on libpaper and libjpeg6a which are still libc5 (well
libpaper is libc5, libjpeg6a is statically linked, so i am not so 

The maintainer of libjpeg is trying to upload a new library in these
days and i am working on libpaper now, so i think all will be finished
during next week.

A non-maintained release is ok with me (proviso uploads of
packages which depends on libc5 are still ok),
however, please use version number 5.03-0.1, which is for 
non-maintainer releases.
