You might want to build it yourself from the Debian sources.  All you
need is the libsdl1.2 source package (apt-get source libsdl1.2) and the
new upstream tarball.  You can then use uupdate to integrate the new
tarball into the Debian package.  After that just build the package with
a suitable changelog entry.  You can look at my howto on Debian package
customization for pointers:
