These programs often need libs that are in the oldlibs section.
What you need to do is write down the libs that the programs are
complaining about. then point your browser to
http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages then scroll down till you
see the Search Contents of the Latest Release search engine.
Enter the names (one at a time) and search. You'll get a listing
of files and the packages that contain them. Install the packages
you should be good as gold.
