It might be. I would do the following:
- one file shlibs (as yours)
- one file shlibs.local (as yours)
- one file shlibs.ignore containing no dependency at all
now use dpkg-shlibdeps -L debian/shlibs.ignore for P,
 dpkg-shlibdeps -L debian/shlibs.local for P-dev

it will generate different substitutions for the different packages, you
just have to run it twice.

definitely this.
