You need at least 2.8.4dev5, circa July 2000.  You'll have to compile it
yourself, I guess--unless or until Debian updates their package.  Depending on
your experience level, building from scratch may be a little intimidating, but
it's really not too tough.

There's not usually much reason not to use the most recent release.  Major bugs
are pretty rare.  The second 2.8.4 prelease has been out for almost two weeks
without prompting any agonized moans from the users (that I've noticed), so
it's probably pretty safe.
