well, an unversioned dependency on libc6-dev is harmless, and only warrants
a wishlist bug report, as all libc-dev's provide libc6-dev (the alpha one
does, too). What hurts us are the versioned depends.
BTW, where is the trouble in spotting? You grep through the database, you
don't break it and wait what happens :)
