I am not sure we want to add a new dependency for libc-bin, I am sure
people running embedded systems won't appreciate. Any reason for not
shipping it in libc-dev-bin instead? For me that looks more like a tool
to be used for "development". At least the memusagestat is similar to
the mtrace one that is in libc-dev-bin.

We also have to make sure that this new build-dependency doesn't break
bootstrapping. I have added Helmut in Cc so that he can have a look.
