Actually the problem is more complex apparently.

You don't need to link it to libpthread unless you call pthread_create
somewhere. So you need to fix the options passed to the linker to
drop the -lpthread (the library linked are unrelated to the include
you use, but if you can drop the include and it still builds it probably
means you don't need the library for real and you can drop it from the
linker command line).

So it's not a bug on dpkg-shlibdeps as I first suspected.
