Bug#652170: new libprocps0 package

  Apologies for the rough ride around the libprocps library change.
The latest procps now has split out the shared library into its own
package.  This should mean that there is less of this problem in future.
You will need to download libprocps0-dev and re-link the program to
-lprocps. There is also a pkg-config file if you need that.

I've tested it with xmem and it builds fine with 2 small changes.

In future, there will be a large API change but that will be in a new
library version package so it won't be like the programs suddenly stop
working like before.
