No, I mean that it should actually be fixed in the repo now.

But also, it is safe to remove the -dev packages after you've compiled what you needed. The dev package usually only contains the headers and a .so symlink (which isn't needed at runtime). As long as the lib* package itself is there.

I messed about with this last weekend. It was working until about two weeks ago.

If I remember correctly I tried to install `libwayland-dev` by installing `libwayland-client0=1.6.0-2` which was a downgrade and also removed a lot (if not all) of the dependencies for xorg.

Only a slightly separate issue and will also be resolved.
