Development/Libraries -> headers, static libraries etc. needed by
developers to build applications using a library.
System Environment/Libraries -> dynamic libraries, needed at runtime by
applications linked against those libraries.
You might think of "Development/Libraries" as being the group to use for
-devel subpackages of things that go in "System Environment/Libraries".
Of course the definitions are a bit muddy because most perl modules are
in Development/Libraries but are needed at both compile-time and runtime.
