Disregard that last message. I didn't realize it automatically changes the package to the source package.

A temporary workaround for this problem is to manually add a pkgconfig entry the same way as described in http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11201275&postcount=3 . Obviously this is only a band-aid solution and the package really should have this already.
