These are the versions that came with the Fink-0.8.1 installer almost 5 
years ago. They are indeed from the Fink "unstable" tree of that time.

If you want to get anything newer, you have to run

   fink selfupdate-rsync

first. I don't know if it will work, because your "fink" executable is 
also from 2006, probably fink-0.24.4-31, and I am not sure if is capable 
to still run selfupdate successfully. Current fink version for OSX 10.4 
PPC is 0.29.17-31.
