I gave it a very short try on a plain wheezy without backports and
it failed due to nettle/ecdsa.h missing. Seems that the build-dep on
nettle-dev is not strict enough. But that shouldn't be much of an issue
since nettle is already backported in a more recent release.

Shouldn't be too hard but I'm personally not interested. Though sponsoring
an upload is possible. Is it still worth it with jessie not too far away?
I already started to upgrade low priority machines to jessie.
