Yes, this gonna be a problem due to the Debian Policy about embedded code
copies [1].

I see those options:
- talk to the fox-1.6 maintainer about updating the package to 1.7.
  (though I see that they generally stick to released versions and 1.7.* seems
  to be only development snapshots; a question to ask: is the 1.7 ABI stable already?)
- make the features optional that requires 1.7
- use only 1.6 features (listed for completeness, as you said you can't)
