Within the Debian model, it will manifest as an unsatisfyable build-dependency,
because individual libwhateverXX-dev will provide libwhateverYY-dev,
and libwhateverXX-dev and libwhateverXX-dev both provides/conflicts 
libwhatever-dev, and another library package libanotherXX will not be 
able to build-depend on set of packages that eventually depend on both
libwhateverXX-dev and libwhateverYY-dev.
(or at least, would be noticed by people who run pbuilder over random
