Well thanks ! That was a good bug report, indeed I forgot to duplicate
cmake stuff into the equivalent debian file. I'll fix ASAP. But it
should read:

  SET(CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_DEPENDS "libc6, libstdc++6 (>= 4.0.2-4),
libuuid1, zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.2), libexpat1, swig")

  Everytime I look at a debian package, it seems that those values are
somehow hardcoded. I would think that a human is actually checking
those versions, correct ? Or is there a tool that would say:

$ superdupertool libfoo.so
=> this lib requires libstdc++6 at least version 4.0.2
