If they're mostly used interactively, how about gracefully failing with a note why
(This program needs foo to run, on Debian, you find it in packages bar). That, in
combination with Recommends etc., would IMHO be the most useful.

Ideally, you'd verify some more prominent versions (i.e. those in woody, sarge) of
the packages let your scripts work is intended.
(I'm not claiming that that's necessary though.)
