Above you write "build-depends".

Above I emphasize (source versus binary package, and) build-depending 
versus depending.

Above you write (something syntactically flawed, but) "dependency".

If I understand you correctly, you have added a _build-dependency_ to 
the _source_ package.  That solves the reported issues in scenarios 
involving establishing an official Debian build environment - but does 
not solve the reported issue for non-build scenarios.

Debian *-dev packages are not only for Debian package building.
