Hmmm, it should install automatically if you are getting items from
the official Ubuntu repositories.  I have universe and multiverse
enabled on my Kubuntu 7.10 and haven't had any problems with
dependencies.  However, I have a feeling I have seen an option to
manually select dependencies.  It may seem to be a daft option but
sometimes one dependency can cause another to misbehave.  But if you
really want that library or other piece of software then I suppose
you'd want to opt for the manual side of things.

Have you perhaps changed a setting inadvertently?  Or maybe enabled an
unofficial repository?
