  [SRU] Missing static libs in the -dev package metadata

Status in gazebo package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

   * The libgazebo9-dev does not include the static libs generated
     during the gazebo build.
     Users of gazebo binaries can not access to them through the
     normal package.

   * At this moment there is only one .a library being generated
     (libgazebo_test_fixture.a). This can be checked in the build log:

  amd64.gazebo_9.0.0+dfsg5-3ubuntu1_BUILDING.txt.gz (search for Linking
  CXX static library)

   * The change in the packaging metadata should make the new -dev package
     to ship the static libraries.

  [Test Case]

   * To trigger the bug:
     apt-get install libgazebo9-dev && find /usr/lib -name libgazebo_*.a && echo "static lib found" || echo "no static lib found"

  [Regression Potential]

   * The change does not modify in any way any of the current files being
     packed but add more regexp to the install fix.

   * Upstream debian custom packages made this change long ago and there 
     was no problem reported:


  [Other Info]

   * I'm part of Gazebo upstream and the debian maintainer.
