That's a known packaging issue previous discussed with Johan.
SAGA 2.1 requires newer wxwidgets than 12.04 has (which could also
effect GRASS). He was hesitant to put wxwidgets in Ubuntugis. I think he
was going to ask Victor to make it possible to still use 2.0.8 with
Processing/Sextante, which we do have.

Or you can get it from https://launchpad.net/~johanvdw/+archive/saga-gis
Not sure if it will break GRASS or not.

Last discussion on the topic was on in August.
