Yes, we _do_ need a normal lib package and lib-dev package as we need
those to compile the cdebconf-gtk frontend against.
Having these packages conflict with the regular ones is not really an
option IMO. It would probably work for buildds, but it would make working
on the graphical installer on normal systems a pain.

I'm sorry, but don't you use a chroot environment for such work?
