correct - thanx

yes - this is something I'd like stag to deal with eventually - check
build-dependencies and install the right things. This is of course ticky
because it doesn't know if the native or the cross versions of things should
be installed. Any suggestion as to how this might be dealt with?
Do we really need build-deps-arch and build-deps-indep to solve this
'properly'? (in which case Emdebian packages should be patched accordingly)

I think it would be better to make dpkg-shlibdeps honour these environment
variables, than attempt to correctly modify all the rules files, because
this will always need to be done (under the current scheme).
