File a bug against library B requesting that the new upstream release be
packaged. Call that bug #987654. Then issue the following BTS command:

   block 123456 by 987654

also, if you write "with" instead of "by" you get the same effect.

See as an example the pair (368395, 375429). There 375429 is blocking 368395.
