Another option, for individual executables like this, is to get a binutils
.deb file, e.g.
from some Debian mirror and unpack it by hand.  You'll have to do this
on some other machine though.  If you don't have a Debian system
(i.e. you don't have dpkg running) then you need a working ar to
unpack the .deb file.

You will need the right version of the libc shared library installed,
of course.
