What happened to this idea? I think this is the (a?) reason ruby-rmagick
is currently failing its autopkgtests, using an imagemagick at runtime
that it is not built against?

We have seen this on Ubuntu as well, and I wonder if it would be
appropriate to just extract the libmagickcore version used at build-time
and override the shlib-depends for that package with specifically the
built-using version? Thanks to Adam Conrad for this suggestion.

I can work on a patch, if it would be acceptable.
