Bug#695097: Prepared sleuthkit 4.1.0

Since upstream renamed all the include paths from 'tsk3' to 'tsk since
v4.1.0, would it work to rename libtsk-dev to libtsk3-3-dev so that it
remains with the other libtsk3-3 libraries, and libtsk-dev becomes the
new standard following the v4.x upstream?  libtsk3-3-dev can continue
to provide tsk3 bindings as /usr/include/tsk3 and libtsk-dev can
provide v4.x and future bindings as /usr/include/tsk.

I may be ignorant about this so please correct me if I am wrong.  All
of the forensic applications are migrating to v4.x Sleuthkit bindings
and will want to include 'tsk' in the future.  Some tools like fiwalk
have already started down this path.
