a new debian package is available at:

from the changelog:
  * New upstream release with a lot of new formats and features.
  * Fix the --libs option of the installed gdal-config.
  * Many correctness and style fixes to debian/rules. The aim is to have
    the source package to build cleanly on woody as well.
  * Change the build dependencies to present a woody alternative to sid-only

the bigger news is that the source package now supports woody out-of-the box 
(with just minor warnings).
the suggested way to build the debs from source is:
# apt-get instal devscripts
$ tar -xzvf gda-1.1.9.tar.gz
$ gunzip -c gdal_1.1.9-1.diff.gz | patch -p0
$ cd gdal-1.1.9
$ debuild -us -uc
(if debuild complains about missing depencencies
# apt-get install whatever-is-missing
and retry)
# dpkg -i ../*gdal*.deb
