When in doubt, run lintian with --info, which gives detailed
information about the warnings.

Fix them in debian/copyright and ask upstream to fix them in the source code.

A quick bit of Googling leads me to believe that this isn't very important for a slow-moving API like this library's, but my knowledge of the inner workings of the linking system is pretty rudimentary. Input on this or other aspects of library packaging would be much appreciated.
Symbols files are more useful for slower-moving ABIs, since they relax

Yep, write a debian/rules get-orig-source tarball to create a new
tarball with those things removed.
