Most of the functionality (except sha1_transform) of Digest::SHA1 is also provided by Digest::SHA. Switching from Digest::SHA1 to Digest::SHA should be in priciple easy as substituting the use of Digest::SHA1 to Digest::SHA.

Digest::SHA is in Perl core since version 5.9.3 and thus is in Debian's perl since Lenny.

Changing use of Digest::SHA1 to Digest::SHA would thus reduce external dependencies by one.

Packages using Digest::SHA instead of Digest::SHA1 can then drop the (Build-)Depends(-Indep) on libdigest-sha1-perl.

Replacing Digest::SHA1 with Digest::SHA and removal of libdigest-sha1-perl package
