There is not dependencies between debug packages, in the sense of 'debug 
package X need debug package Y to be used'.

I don't know if there an easy way to do it. Usually, tough, the name of 
the function where the crash does occurs is enough to tell wich debug 
package is needed exactly.

That could be an interesting urpmi feature, tough, to be able to 
automatically install all those packages at once.
