In my opinion, the versioned dependency to libev-dev in liblwt-ocaml-dev
should be filled automatically, the same way it is for liblwt-ocaml. But
I don't know how to do it. dpkg-shlibdeps doesn't seem to be designed to
work this way. If so, I would say the bug is on dpkg-shlibdeps's side;
however it looks like a corner case, whose fix looks difficult and

I've put debian-dpkg in CC. Let's see if someone there has a suggestion.
