  You need to remember that Debian is a project staffed by volunteers,
 some of whom have already offered packages.  If you cannot trust random
 binaries then the patches are available.

  If you do have a legitimate reason for not upgrading, then your
 choices are few - and largely consist of:

    * Rolling your own packages, via the public patches, which you will
      then trust.

    * Finding somebody trustworthy.

    * Upgrading.

  My personal response to somebody requesting newer updates has got to
 be "What is your budget?"..
