Bug#238156: dpkg-dev: dpkg-gencontrol ignore Depends: field

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.10.20
Severity: important

dpkg-gencontrol ignore Depends field in debian/control if a variable
such as ${shlibs:Depends} or ${perl:Depends} is used. Everything is fine
when specifying package names without variables.

exemple : 
if I have 
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${perl:Depends}, iptables
in debian/control, dpkg-gencontrol -O does not show any Depends: field.

but if I put :
Depends: iptables
it works.
