You need to do two things:
compface should have a DEBIAN/shlibs file. See programmer's manual
2.2. This file then gets copied into /var/lib/dpkg/info/compface.shlibs.
Since not all shared lib packages provide shlibs files yet, you'll need
a debian/shlibs.local file in xfaces to get the dependency on libXpm.
Don't worry about libm. It's covered by libc. The
/etc/dpkg/shlibs.override file is just to bootstrap the other
