This should be >= 2:1.8 (note the epoch) otherwise even a Java 7 JDK
would satisfy this dependency.

The versions for libjna-java (>= 4.2.2) and libjna-platform-java (>=
4.2.2) are already present in Stretch, so if you declare these
dependencies in debian/control they should be downloaded automatically.
I assume this error message is caused by your special build environment.
