Download the source and read the INSTALL for instructions.

Off the top of my head you will at least babl and gegl which may well
install from a deb

Otherwise you may have to build them yourself, babl first and then
gegl, last time I tried, gegl needed building with with
  ./configure --disable-docs

you will need an updated glib, pango, atk I think, and finally gtk

build them with ./configure --prefix=/opt and
make sure you set the environment variables for your build as follows:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/lib:/usr/lib"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/opt/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig"
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /opt/share/aclocal"

Comeback if you run into troubles.

Just watch configure, it will give you all the bad news :-)
