This seems to be a rather popular request in ubuntu. There, we have
metapackages shipped that depend in the libxxx-unstripped variants. Now
if people use 'apt-get build-dep' they are confused because apt either
fails or if you are lucky, apt will replace the unstripped variant with
the stripped one.

I'm not that convinced about that as well, but adjusting the
dependencies on the -dev packages shouldn't hurt either. Unless I miss
something here...
