Looks OK to me for now and builds fine here.

I'd go with uploading it so we can make sure that afflib reaches
squeeze in time (including sleuthkit with decent support for
afflib). In the meantime we could talk to upstream and ask for an
option to disable the tests without having to manually patch the
Makefile files.

Christophe, Do I have your ACK for uploading based on latest git
commit (9246198670b3fbde6fed9ecdaa5ce3d9f208054e)?

Thanks, Christophe.
