building shlibs

Confused about building shlibs. I've got a package which 
contains both binaries and a library [don't flame me just yet].

The problem is that dpkg-shlibdeps says that the package depends on itself,
which lintian doesn't like.

So I'm trying to split the package. I run "dh_makeshlibs -V", since it's
alpha software and the library can be expected to change a lot. But
when dpkg-shlibdeps runs for the binary package, it uses the version
information from the currently installed version of the library,
not from the version that's being built.

Can anyone suggest a way out? I guess it must be a pretty common problem.
