The Debian package is called alien. But if you're looking for a Debian
package for the GIMP 1.2, just find a local unstable mirror and do:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install gimp1.2 gimp1.2-perl
These packages worked great for me, but I've been tracking unstable
fairly closely for years now, so if you're still using potato, YMMV.
