Download the source, the (.orig.tar.gz, .dsc and .diff.gz file of the package) by hand or thru apt-get source, unpack with dpkg-source -x package.dsc and build (probably ./debian/rules binary iirc, correct me if i am wrong)
this will link it to the correct libc version. you possibly need to do the same with some libs it depends on not available in potato (or too old)
