$ apt-cache policy libpng3-dev
  Version Table: 0
        500 http://ftp.egr.msu.edu unstable/main Packages
        500 http://ftp.egr.msu.edu testing/main Packages

The chance of the autobuilders getting this wrong is negligible, it's
been almost a year since the fixed libpng3-dev became available.  You
could add a versioned build-dep and a versioned dep, but it doesn't seem
all that important for any real world cases.
