do you know how to build debian packages?

you always build them in a chroot, e.g. with pbuilder or other tools.
when you /rebuild/ the package, so the values in ${shlibs:Depends} are
replaced with the packages from your chroot anyway, so don't care about
them for the moment.

just ask Adam, he's a friendly person :) maybe he will even provide the
backport himself.
