A quick 'apt-cache search circuit' reports:

acs - Al's Circuit Simulator -- dummy package
chipmunk-log - a circuit schematic capture tool and simulation
electric - electrical CAD system
gnucap - GNU Circuit Analysis package.
gpsim - Simulator for Microchip's PIC microcontrollers
gtkwave - a VCD (Value Change Dump) file waveform viewer
oregano - GNOME application for schematic capture of electrical circuits
pcb - Printed Circuit Board Design Program
gael - Gnome application for electrical circuits
gerbv - Gerber file viewer for PCB design
ksimus - KDE tool for simulating electrical circuits
tkgate - Event driven digital circuit simulator with Tcl/Tk
xcircuit - Draw circuit schematics or almost anything.
circ-tex - LaTeX macros to typeset circuit & optics diagrams.

as well as a number of others that aren't apparently involved with
circuit boards. I don't know which are only in testing or unstable, but
would any of those meet your needs?
