I would actually suggest a fresh start instead.  The wacom-tools package
has always been sort of a mess and the new driver's build system is
actually much closer to the evdev driver than the old wacom driver.

I've got a working package in one of my PPAs (NB: the package contains
the complete git repository):

Note that this requires an xserver patch to work with serial wacom devices:
