Well, it only needs these for static linkage; beyond that, it's a libtool
bug that it attempts to link directly with shared library dependencies
when doing a shared build.  pkg-config provides a mechanism to get this

You have to; there isn't any way to automatically detect dependencies for
-dev packages (at least right now).

Well, you probably only need shishi-common from the same upstream release,
but yeah, that won't hurt anything and is the simple way of doing it.
