I recently backported debhelper and friends to Etch, and it seems the
tightened dpkg dependency is only relevant for packages using debhelper
hints related to shared libraries (which I believe cdd-dev does not),
and it also seems to me that such packages will fail loudly (rather than
generate broken binary packages).
If you are lazy, you can use my prepared backports here:
deb http://debian.jones.dk/ etch src
Or if you (like me) want to trust only Debian and yourself, then here's
the sources for you to investigate and hopefully get inspired from:
