your .install file have some issues
let me explain.
you have to provide a library.so.1.0.whatever
if you want you can provide a library.so.1 linking the first one (just a symlink)
and you have to ship them in the libmypackage1 package
the -dev package should *only* ship the symlink library.so, the header files, and maybe the pkgconfig scripts or whatever
is useful for the developer who links the library.
well, the -dev package should depend on the real package in your control file

related to the first issue
>W: mypackage: empty-binary-package
probably related to the first issue
>W: libmypackage-dev: package-name-doesnt-match-sonames libmypackage1
this is a problem caused by the first issue, the dev package shouldn't have the real library, but just a symlink
>I am using bzr builddeb -- -us -uc to create the packages.
not a problem, I use gbp, but it is fine anyway.
I think if you fix your install files your package will quickly start to be working
(man dh_install man dh_auto_install helps)
maybe you can see from there
