[Pkg-crosswire-devel] BibleTime now needs xiphos as a build-dependency??

Something seems to be odd with SWORD dependencies in Debian.
I just created a fresh Debian testing VM (from the Beta1 netinst ISO),
and then did
su -c "echo 'jonathan ALL=(ALL) ALL' >/etc/sudoers"
sudo apt-get devscripts
to prepare the system for package creation.
I then copied in the source tree for my latest BibleTime package for
2.8.0, and tried to build it. It failed because several dependencies
where missing, as expected.
sudo apt-get install autotools-dev quilt cdbs libsword-dev \
libclucene-dev poxml libboost-dev cmake zlib1g-dev \
should fix that. And indeed it does... but it also pulls in xiphos,
xiphos-data and xiphos-dbg! These are definitely not needed as build
dependencies for BibleTime :)
Did someone set libsword8 to Recommend: xiphos, or something odd like
that? Or is apt-get in Debian now acting on Suggests: by default?
I don't think it is reasonable for libsword8 to pull in xiphos like
this, when the underlying reason for installing libsword8 is to compile
Can anyone shed any light on this, or am I just misunderstanding
