No, I don't think so.

Possible options:
1 - compile 8.51 from source
2 - convince fink that 8.54 is quite nice
3 - ditch fink.

After about 5 years of OS X, I think the time has come to opt for  
possibility 3, most open source projects acknowledge that OS X  
exists, and compile cleanly. What package were you installing
