OK, finding my eyes openend up i could download debparanoia 
from http://debparanoia.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/debparanoia/trunk/ via WEB directly.

Then i invoked it as "debparanoia -c debparanoia.conf mirror" using 
debparanoia.conf from the examples directory:
  # list of debian package repositories to mirror
  # (corresponding to /etc/apt/sources.list config lines 'deb ...')
          "http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-ports unreleased main"
          "http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-ports unstable main"
  # list of debian source-package repositories to mirror
  # (corresponding to /etc/apt/sources.list config lines 'deb-src ...')
          "http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian rc-buggy main"
          "http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian unstable main"
  # space-separated list of architectures to mirror                               

Unfortunately it fails with "*E* Listing of package-files failed" after 
mirroring about 7GB of archive files - debmirror gave me about 34GB.

On another call to debmirror (target directory containing my old powerpcspe archive) 
i got some more error messages complaining about running out of open files; 
maybe it's a memory issue? I used a (somewhat old) x86 debian squeeze machine.

Any hint's how i could proceed?
