How to ensure packages generated from -source are installable?

Kernel module source packages generated Debian packages which may not be 
installable.  For instance, alsa-source does not depend on alsa-base, 
but the generated alsa-modules does.  ndiswrapper-source does the same 
with ndiswrapper-utils.

Is there a flag to dpkg to refuse to install unless dependencies are 
met?  What ends up happening now is the package ends up installing 

The generalized form of this question is how does one deal with 
missing dependencies when using dpkg and not apt.
