Bug#713364: libewf transition and #713364

I have noticed that libewf has started a transition from libewf1 to
libewf2. At the moment only sleuthkit still blocks the completion of
the transition. In a case like this, I would have been inclined to just
have scheduled a binNMU and finish the transition for you.
However, sleuthkit suffers from #713364 which is a FTBFS bug, so I
have no reason to believe a binNMU will be successful.
As it is, the libewf transition is stalling the testing migration of dff
(and the fix for #713521). With no visual feedback on #713364 since Sep
1st, I am very tempted to just remove sleuthkit from testing and finish
the transition that way. It would require me to remove autopsy as well
(collateral damage), though it would be 2 RC bugs for 2 packages.
Comments welcome, a fix for #713364 in sid (or deferred) even more so.
