Hi Scott,

I packaged the 4.3.1 version now. I did some checks and I saw that the
upstream does not use this library.

1. Via grep, I can not see a call for the library in main program. I
think that the upstream uses the directory to generate, manually,
files for MS Windows.

2. Removing the directory framework/modules/c_LibExifModule, the
package builds fine. The config.log and sleuthkit_4.3.1-1_amd64.build
don't show any call to libexif.

I thing this bug can be closed. What is your oppinion?

Thanks for your message.
