backport of the wheezy version might indeed help. But TBH, even wheezy
is so old that I can't/want to support this any more. If it works for
you, then please do feel free to request a backport of course!
For doing development, is there any reason why you need to use such
old versions? I. e. perhaps it might be better to run autopkgtest from
unstable/testing, with using a squeeze schroot instead of the null
