Debian provides a debhelper based dependency infrastructure which is in
the cli-common-dev package, for more details see the Debian CLI Policy:

The dependency part is covered in 6.1:

I strongly recommend to use debhelper 7 style packaging (/usr/bin/dh)
as that makes things much simpler, see 6.2.2:

If you have further questions regards CLI packaging, you are invited to
join #debian-cli on OFTC or the Debian CLI mailing list:
