That doesn't seem to exist, but according to [1], the -dev variant
contains the library itself again. Hence I assumed that this is the
debug-enabled, non-stripped version of the .so that ships with this
package. Admittedly though, I didn't check as I didn't have an Ubuntu
box around.

Anyway - if this doesn't work, go the "apt-get build-dep" way that was
mentioned by Pavel.
