@apolih, thanks for making this a package. This seems to be a very intricate piece of software indeed. I saw a lot of errors concerning https when running the tests, I'm afraid this might be the reason for the build failing.

Yes, I can add python-virtualenv. I'm not familiar enough with the software to know if the HTTPS changes are causing the issue. Actually navigating the build system is a challenge in itself.

Thanks for your patch and comments.

From the upstream repository:

"We have released new tools with version 2.8.0 that are HTTPS compatible and M-15-13 compliant as of October 7, 2016. Please be certain to update all of your binaries and configuration files."

could this be the issue? This package is in version 2.7.0, which is outdated according to the above quote.

It still doesn't work, I created an upstream PR to fix some cipher test errors, for now you could add the patch But even with this patched up it doesn't seem to build properly and fails at the tests.

EDIT: I managed to install it by disabling the tests, but that might be risky.

Could you please add python-virtualenv as a dependency? It is used by the test suite when building the package.
