I built the packages now according to Nicolas' suggestion.
You will find them in updates_testing.
The problem is, the math extension doesn't work till now, I'm getting 
some error messages telling me, the latex things aren't setup correctly.
According to a google search that does mean the apache user doesn't have 
the right permissions on those tools, which he does.
I am trying to debug it further but perhaps someone else does have an 
idea. I would be greatful for it...
