I suspect we need kind of a meta package here? Or do debian packages have a "provides" option?

                   Mandatory : NO
                   Default   : -
                   see http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html#s-binarydeps
                   A virtual package is one which appears in the Provides control field of another package.

CPack seems to be able to handle this. So rsb-spread and rsb should somehow both provide an rsb metapackage where all others depend on.

Or rsb-tools-cpp0.7 specifies to depend on rsb0.7 or rsb0.7-with-spread. Wouldn't that also be possible?

Is there something like an OR?

I'm closing this since I cannot find an rsb0.7-with-spread package anymore. Reopen if necessary.
