BTW, there is no need to fiddle with LDFLAGS or anything.  Just add
libcap-dev to the Build-Depends and it comes out peachy, at least
according to the dependency line:

 Package: bacula-fd
 Source: bacula
 Version: 5.2.6+dfsg-3
 Architecture: amd64
 Maintainer: Debian Bacula Team <pkg-bacula-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org>
 Installed-Size: 357
 Depends: bacula-common (= 5.2.6+dfsg-3), lsb-base, ucf, initscripts (>= 2.88dsf-13.3), libacl1 (>= 2.2.51-8), libc6 (>= 2.3), libcap2 (>= 2.10), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libpython2.7 (>= 2.7), libssl1.0.0 (>= 1.0.0), libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1), libwrap0 (>= 7.6-4~), zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4)

It also starts fine:

 8061 ?        Ssl    0:00 /usr/sbin/bacula-fd -c /etc/bacula/bacula-fd.conf -k -u bacula
