How 'long-neglected', and, importantly, which version is this?

If it is unstable, this may work, but I'd recommend using apt-get
rather than aptitude for this many packages. And as David says, it isn't
guaranteed  to work at all. I've lost two old unstables, which could no
doubt have been resurrected if I'd spent enough time, but it was easier
to reinstall.
