Bug#757140: apr-util: please drop unneeded dependencies in libaprutil1-dev

Package: apr-util
Version: 1.5.3-2

libaprutil1-dev contains dependencies on four other -dev packages which
do not appear to actually be needed when building against libaprutil:


These appear to stem from a need to have .la files provided by those
packages, which were previously referred to by the dependency_libs in
libaprutil1.la.  Now that the dependency_libs is empty (per Policy 10.2
and #619179), the corresponding -dev package dependencies are no longer
needed, and serve only to force the installation of unnecessary
development packages.  In particular, this dependency, combined with an
actual dependency in libpq-dev, means that it is impossible to have
libaprutil1-dev and heimdal-dev installed at the same time.
