Hmm. Why?

It seems quite common to provide libxyz-dev which always matches the
latest libxyzN package, even when libxyz1 becomes libxyz2 etc.

It also means that if package X doesn't require any particular version,
it can build-depend on t1lib-dev and always get the latest version.
ie IMHO changing the build-deps of packages that use t1lib would be a
bad idea.
