Fine, sending to -devel as well.

There is not bug here. Perhaps the scripts or tests you use need
to be tightened?
The build dependency line reads (in part)
libreadline-dev | libreadline6-dev | libreadline5-dev,
Which means that the new packages are picked by default, but it
is also backports friendly, allowing backporters to still use
libreadline5-dev. This is strictly better than just using the new
dependencies. It does not prevent removing libreadline5-dev from
Squeeze, the package will continue to build just fine.
Closing the bug, with no changes.
