I think there is no need to include those libraries in upstream tarball.
Consider that I'm not DD, but probably the best solution would be to
extract their tarball and remove those libraries, then tar-gzip it again
an start packaging. If their autotools/makefile's use those included
libraries then patching it to use Debian versions would be nice.
