Goodness, two plys for my package in the one night..

ipcheck doesn't have any version dependancies (it is just a python script), so you can
download the ipcheck package from either stable, testing or unstable and provided you
have python installed it will work fine on a potato box.

That said after a quick check, ddclient only has a versioned dependancy on debconf (>=
0.5.0) so it could well work as well.  If not you can build a dedicated
potato version yourself:

# apt-get build-dep ddclient
# apt-get --compile source ddclient
