That's because it's part of their universe repository, which is
sometimes synched with Debian.

Debian unstable still has 5.4.7, I'm really lagging behind. I have
uploaded 5.6.2 packages to experimental, and they seem to build fine on
all arches. I'm preparing 5.6.3, autoconf based, packages and will
upload them to experimental again until I can polish some remaining
issues I'll report on later.
