I'm a little confused now so please bear with me, or just ignore me as 
you choose :)

I'm not at all sure where libart comes into my equation. I have 
libart-2.0-2 & libart-2.0-dev installed on my system, as debs, but  not 
libart-lgpl. Nor does libart-lgpl appear in the stable sources, except 
as an almost empty sub-folder of konstruct/libs or in apt on either 
Squeeze or Wheezy.

So, as a layman, what am I missing? I did say I was confused.

 From a Wheezy point of view, yes, it's not marked as stable, but 
waiting for debian stable is like waiting for a bus on a Sunday. 
Besides, having experienced this build from source of 3.5.13, being 
marked as stable doesn't mean it really is stable. No insult or slight 
intended :)
