Frederik probably has a better way, but one way of doing it to just
add unstable as a apt archive and install libmapnik-dev from there
instead of stable.
That'll get you the latest 0.7.1 mapnik, instead of 0.5.1 in stable.
You can also apt-get source libmapnik-dev from unstable to get the
source, including the debian/ directory used to build it. That'll
allow you to build your own from source using Debian's scripts.
