Actually, I sort of like the following technique better:
Add the following to debian/rules right before calling "$(MAKE) all"
(but after configure):
sed < libtool > libtool-2 \
-e 's/^hardcode_libdir_flag_spec.*$$/hardcode_libdir_flag_spec=" -D__L
IBTOOL_IS_A_FOOL__ "/' \
-e '/^archive_cmds="/s/"$$/ \\$$deplibs"/'
That way, there is no need to patch configure.in and rerun autoconf.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=debian/tmp/usr/lib dh_shlibdeps -V
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH prevents ldd from linking to a library that
is installed on the system, so dpkg-shlibdeps doesn't find the
associated package (so there is no dependency created).
