Summarizing the upstream thread, it seems the solution they prefer is
to just ignore dependency_libs when linking dynamically. Is there any
situation where that wouldn't work in Debian? pkg-config has both
Libs/Requires and Libs.private/Requires.private so there must be some
kind of use-case where stuff linking to shared-lib libfoo also has to
link with libbar?
