Joey advised to make sure these libs are installed on the system as this 
works for current images.

However, there appears to be a catch.

If the udeb providing a lib is included in the list of packages to be 
downloaded, having the lib installed on the system no longer works.

For example zlib1g. The s/390 images use SSH and the openssh-server-udeb 
depends zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1). That lib is in the build depends and 
installed on the system and all is well.

The 3 libs above also depends on zlib1g, but I also have libpng12-0-udeb 
which depends zlib1g-udeb. Thus the udeb gets listed in Needed packages 
and the magic no longer works.

IMO we need a solution for this.
