AFAIK (I just checked the ftp site) bo apears to be gone fromt he FTP 
archives. From what I know of debian...that means there  probably aren't
any archives with old packages for it. (remember...disk space is always
a factor)

You wont really see any new packages for bo anyway now...but...
you can always get the source from hamm and build it...its not
tough. I would imagine that for most packages its just a matter
of dpkg-source -x package.dsc 
then cd <packagedir>
and dpkg-buildpackage
(there are of course some variations on that theme ;) )
many packages I would imagine will work
