The version numbers are necessary because Debian does not guarantee
downward compatibility with libraries. So when a package links
against a library, it gets a dependency on that version of the library
package (or any more recent), but not on earlier versions.
The source package does not have such versioned dependencies except
when there is reason to think they are necessary (which doesn't apply
in the present cases AFAICT).
