is anyone maintaining a
.deb for 1.7? I am uniquely unqualified to do so.

I think you mean 1.5, which is the development branch that includes SSL support.
http://www.roedie.nl/2012/12/28/haproxy-1-5-dev17/ supposedly has it, but your mileage may vary - keep in mind, deb packages are installed as root, so you should only install them from sources that you trust fully and explicitly.
You may also be able to use Checkinstall to build it yourself in a simpler fashion.
