Uh, hm.  In order for dh_shlibdeps to pick this up automatically, since
the library package is built as part of the same source package, it needs
to have a line like:

    dh_shlibdeps -L libshishi0 -l$(CURDIR)/debian/libshishi0/usr/lib

to point it to the uninstalled shared libraries.  However, this package is
using cdbs, with which I'm not as familiar, so I don't know whether it's
supposed to be doing this magic on its own or requires kicking in some

I will go poke at the cdbs documentation and see if I can figure it out.
