Please excuse the somewhat terse answer of our fellow Goswin...
You need to download the Sources file for the corresponding
distribution. It's available in the same place as the Packages file.
This file contains the information you need. In order to extract it,
the easiest way is to use grep-dctrl, like this:
$ grep-dctrl -n -s Package -F Build-Depends docbook-xml /path/to/Sources
$ man grep-dctrl
for more details.
