Thanks, Simon: this fills a gap in my knowledge by providing the mising
piece :)

To the OP, since it seems to me that this wasn't explicit enough: a
Debian source packagee can be the origin of several binary packages.
A typical case wold be an SQL server, whose source contains server,
server libs, client and client libs -- but you don't want to install
the whole kaboodle in your embedded box which just wants to access
a database.
