Bug#484132: libavcodec-dev: circular dependency with libavutil-dev

Hello Debian multimedia packages maintainers,
There is a circular dependency between libavcodec-dev and libavutil-dev:
libavcodec-dev :Depends: libavutil-dev (= 0.svn20080206-7)
libavutil-dev :Depends: libavcodec-dev (= 0.svn20080206-7)
Circular dependencies are known to cause problems during upgrade, so we
should try to get rid of them.
In this case, I do not see the point of having two packages, if users
are required to install both of them with the same version anyway.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
