I can't to remember.. I think it was from tar.bz2.

I use etch, too. AFAIK, there's no .deb package for Etch... so you
probably did do the tarball.
Installation instructions for the binary tarball are in this link:
To upgrade you'll do something like this:
$ su -
password: (root password)
# mkdir /root/brlcad-tmp
# cd /root/brlcad-tmp
# tar xjf /path/to/brlcad_7.10.4_linux_ia32.tar.bz2
# cd /usr
# mv -i brlcad brlcad-old
# mv -i /root/brlcad-tmp/usr/brlcad .
# rm -rf brlcad-old
# rm -rf /root/brlcad-tmp
If you're worried about losing something in brlcad-old, don't delete it
until your confident.
Hope this helps,
