If only it was that simple :-)

I am package maintainer of sugar-hulahop, so would have been quicker for 
me to add that dependency than file a bugreport if this was the case.

I may have found the cause of the problem just now: during build 
dh_shlibdeps warns about being unable to locate libxul.so below 
/usr/lib/xulrunner- - and the library is in fact not there, but 
below /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.

I will go hunt for some wrong hardcoded path somewhere in either 
sugar-hulahop itsef, xulrunner-dev or python-xpcom.

Thanks for your valid question (and sorry for my too short bugreport).
