That's not true. Latest dpkg-shlibdeps uses ldd/objdump together. It uses
objdump to get the list of library deps, and then maps it against ldd
output to get the full PATH to just these libraries.

So yes, it is quite reasonable to require using LD_LIBRARY_PATH to let
dpkg-shlibdeps(ldd) know where this library is, even if you have shlibs.local.
The reason being is that it needs to know the path to the library in order
to map it correctly. It doesn't know that this belongs to the local build
unless it can see the directory.
