Not-so nice :/
glew might be problematic if you need the MX-compiled version (see #474488).

Cons, different tarball to upstream (add a get-orig-source target)
Pros, less space usage, cannot accidentally build against the embedded
ones, don't need to list extra copyrights.

Might be hard to do, rm -rf in debian/rules might be more effective.
Cannot accidentally build against the embedded ones if done right.
> ignore them on build
Fine if you feel like listing all the copyrights :)
Waste a bit more space in the archive.
Possibility of something breaking and accidentally compiling against
the embedded libs.
> simply leave them in?
Bad for security and duplication of bugs, please don't do this.
