I'll probably end up doing a yum remove of scalpel, excluding the EPEL and the CERT Forensics versions of scalpel in the respective repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d, and then reinstalling scalpel, which should pull the RPMforge one, and make the crm114 install possible.

But odds are pretty good that you could grab the scalpel src rpm from
epel and fix it to rebuild against the newer libtre in a matter of
minutes. - just changing the spec, not the source...  Stuff like that
does happen, but it's rare (what, one conflict out of thousands of
packages?) and it is usually a lot less trouble to work around than to
avoid the repositories and routinely build source from tarballs
