Current committers are simply working on the 2.4 tree, due to obvious
license concerns. You can simply check 
https://agg.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/agg 
and consult the mailing list to check. Maxim has simply lost interest
and current working happens onto a specific 2.4 branch. I wonder if
maintaining 2.5 in Debian makes sense. Also notes that agg is
essentially a template library, so distributing shlibs
is a non-sense, because instances are defined by use.
That's the reason to have a -dev package only. There's nothing like
a 'system wide' library in proper sense.
