Not exacly. Some of these packages are so called build-essential so you
don't need to include them in your Build-Depends header.
The easiest way to find out needed packages is to try to build it in
pbuilder chroot environment.

-dev packages are intended for building (programming) tasks. So what you
probably need is libqt3-dev or libqt3-mt-dev.

I searched the new maintainer guide and found and read the section on
pbuilder, and also the pbuilder man page, and this (making the package)
seems way more complicated than I thought it would be. Could you
explain how I use it to find the build dependancies?
