I have confirmed that this behavior exists when building 1.0.27-3+ on potato.
I have also confirmed that using dpkg-shlibdeps from dpkg (current
woody) on potato fixes the problem.  I will try to find a way to get the build
to work with dpkg 1.6.15, but if I can't, I will not hesitate to require dpkg
>= 1.7.0.  The new way is just too much more elegant.
