You need to set the (Build-)Depends to read "usbutils (>= 0.86-2~)"
instead of "usbutils (>= 0.86-2)" (notice the trailing ~) so that the
backports version is considered as being in that range.
rhonda@vikings:~$ dpkg --compare-versions 0.86-2~bpo50+1 \>= 0.86-2 ; echo $?
rhonda@vikings:~$ dpkg --compare-versions 0.86-2~bpo50+1 \>= 0.86-2~; echo $?
Hope that helps!
