This is the rules file for current stable version 3.18.0 on debian stable repository (bookworm)(https://tracker.debian.org/media/packages/g/gambas3/rules-3.18.0-4)
And thus this is what they do that seems to work as I do have a qt5-webkit component on old stable (bullseye -> gambas 3.15.2)

I agree very much good sir.
You can name them by their real name, it would be better (and also works better for repository management in my opinion. It would make packaging a lot easier, to figure out.
And just like on Ubuntu it should be possible to package for older versions of Debian as well, still running qt4 for example.
Using them by their real name makes the recipe easier as you know what can and can't be done on the different Debian versions dependency wise, and so makes automation of the process easier as well.
