That is the dh_shlibdeps tool, which is a front-end for dpkg-shlibdeps. 
This has been a basic Debian package building tool for at least 16 
years. You should not hand code the dependencies as Soroush suggested, 
but let the toolchain figure them out. This allows for the library 
packages to be reorganised, or new versions of libraries to be used, as 
they have in the past.
