I'm saying that libncurses-dev/hurd should have a line that

Depends: libc0.3-dev (=foo)


libncurses-dev/i386 should have

Depends: libc6-dev (=foo)

I'm moving this discussion over to -devel, 
because this topic is not restricted to ncurses only.

I'm envisioning a "${Depends:devlibs}" kind of notation,
and something like "dpkg-devlibdeps"
