Install the build-depends for the package, and recompile - you might
have to install old version of gcc, libc and/ or other libraries.

When you figure it out, would appreciate a brief pracie of your
journey :)

Alternatively, install a virtual machine, the older version of
Debian, and share a work folder or two - run it from there.

Good luck,
