I've been fighting with the skull dependency each time there is a new release (basically, manually edit some file in the scribble core to remove the reference to skull).

For the usual non-sys-admin way, simply pulling "stabular.sty" from CTAN and dropping it in the directory as the source Scribble file didn't work with the default Debian setup.)
