Looking at iproute2 4.6.0-4, it build-depends on iptables-dev though. So
maybe only the headers are needed, but not the library?!

In the changelog there is:

iproute (20121001-2) experimental; urgency=low

  * Generate recommends for optional module dependencies
    This makes the optional module dependency on libxtables more
    visible, to hopefully get iproute rebuilt whenever libxtables bumps
    soname.
    Thanks to iptables maintainer for splitting libxtables9 into
    a separate package in version 1.4.16.3-2.

Maybe this is also related?

Best regards
Uwe
