All right, then I continue to suspect that the right thing for the -dev
package question is the following:

Package: xlibmesa3-glu-dev
-Depends: xlibmesa3-glu, xlibmesa-gl-dev | libgl-dev, libstdc++5-dev, libc6-dev | libc-dev
+Depends: xlibmesa3-glu, xlibmesa-gl-dev | libgl-dev, libstdc++5-dev | libstdc++-dev, libc6-dev | libc-dev

This library should be linkable against libstdc++.  Which one should be
used is a matter for Policy to specify and build-essential to enforce.

This the change I'm going to commit to the repo, so time is running out
to stop me.  :)
