With the current scheme it is:
ldd /usr/lib/libwhatever.so to track down its shared library
dependency, strip the soversion and appending "-dev" to individual
package to create the list of requisite -dev packages.
And, by the way, that list is just plain wrong.
Say you have:
libfoobar1 depends (only on) libfoo1, libfoo1 depends libbar1.
YOU would get:
libfoo1: Depends: libbar1-dev
libfoobar1-dev Depends: libfoo1-dev, libbar1-dev.
Now libbar2 is uploaded and libfoo1 recompiled with libbar2:
libfoobar1 depends libfoo1, libfoo1 depends libbar2.
libfoo1: Depends: libbar2-dev
libfoobar1-dev is now uninstallable for no good reason at all.
