Version 4.3.0-2 of the Debian package recently made it into Debian
Lenny, so there should be a MIPS package available, too.

I'd get the source package (either by using `apt-get source collectd' or
by downloading the files yourself and extracting them using
`dpkg-source -x collectd_4.3.0-2.dsc') and build that. To build the
package cd into the newly created directory, make sure that the first
line of `debian/changelog' talks about `stable', not `testing', and do a
`dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us'.

I can't give you a tutorial for building Debia packages here, please
read one or two of the numerous tutorial available. Here are three, to
get you started:

And if you are _very_ lucky, collectd 4 will be available on
backports.org soon ;)
