I recommend to use d-shlibs to auto-resolve library dependencies.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but is it true that d-devlibdeps simply prints out the corresponding -dev packages for the libraries that the given shared library is linked against?

Correct.  As the very first sentence of its manpage says:

Check and list dependencies of development library packages

So d-devlibdeps is mostly for debugging purposes. What I suggest you consider integrating in packaging routines is the companion tool d-shlibmove.

Oh, and please do speak up if you run into trouble with the tool - I have recently taken over upstream maintenance of the tool, so am obviously quite interested in feedback :-)

Kind regards,
