I doubt that you will find updated versions of 1 and 3
as these have been essentially integrated into Plone 3
- or rather became obsolete by the new portlet machinery
and the highly configurable navigation portlet that
ships with Plone now.

Do you have the old site up and running somewhere still?
If so, you could try to uninstall those products and
redo that export.

If not you could try writing dummy products with the
right names that provide the classes or whatever
else is needed to unpickle the old objects.
With ZopeSkel that shouldn't be too hard.

Keep on asking if you go down that route.
