That's correct, and it's also true for almost all distributions.
Fedora and other Red Hat-based distributions call them "x-devel"
instead. Fink instead uses the plain package name for development
packages and "x-shlibs" for the "user-only" package.

Only distributions that compile everything, such as MacPorts or the
original BSD port systems (and Gentoo as well, I think), have no
distinction between "user" and "development" packages.
