Frankly, a new install is less work than chasing down the source

Does Ubuntu include Inkscape? Debian unstable? Knoppix? Other?

Ubuntu certainly does, although not by default. It's in the Main repository, though - just install it thru Synaptic or apt-get after you install Ubuntu. Note that the version in Ubuntu's repos is 0.43, though, not 0.44 which is the very latest release.
