ii  binutils                2.17-3                  The GNU assembler, linker and binary utilities
ii  gcc                     4.1.1-15                The GNU C compiler

binutils is already the newest version.
gcc-4.1 is already the newest version.

Ah, you're running unstable!

# apt-get -t unstable install binutils gcc-4.1
installs just the package version you'Re mentioning.
