The several hundred mb updates are because wxGTK2.4 is now compiled with
g++-3.2 and depends on everything that was compiled with that as well.

What you can do is download the source using

apt-get source ...

and then get the depends using

apt-get build-dep ...

then go into the directory and run

fakeroot debian/rules binary (I think)

then the deb you want will be in .. (or thereabouts)
