I've tried to do this before and encountered:

   See dpkg-shlibdeps(1) for details of the format of shared library
   dependency files.

which of course is recursive and that man page contains no such details.
I don't actually know what the format of that file is (although I expect I
could make guesses at it from poking around, or get a much better idea by
reading over the source code).  But if there is a standard format that
someone knows, it would be great to have that as a patch to Bug#316485.
