I tend to say "yes" - the -dev files aren't arch dependent, and shipping
the binary like that prevents it from being multiarch'd approprately,
which is a massive pain for anyone using it for 32 and 64 bit build on
the same host. Which is nearly no one, sure, but the point stands.

I'd be for shipping a binary seprately, like -tools or -bin for C
