No, debian-devel is mainly the list for developers and other people
working on the Debian operating system. I think your original question
is better asked at firstname.lastname@example.org . If the ensuing
discussion does result in a bug being found (which I'm not yet convinced
is the case), it is best to report it on the individual package through
the BTS, for instance using the "reportbug" command. It is perfectly OK
to report a bug on a package in stable.
When you ask at debian-user, you might want to give a little more
information than was in your first mail. For instance: what are the
contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file; what happens if you try
"apt-get install xlibs-dev" or "aptitude install libmotif-dev"; etc.
