Probably this needs to be fixed upstream.
I listed zlib1g in the Depends section, isn't it the provider of libz.so?
These precompiled binaries should be removed from the upstream source repository and tarballs and always built from source at build time. If upstream refuses to do that, you should remove them from the orig.tar.gz before uploading your package. Using the Files-Excluded feature of uscan is a reasonable way to achieve that.
I am the upstream author of this toolbox. I included those
mex files because most of my users do not have a dev environment to compile.
I will remove them from the orig tarball then.
The source package name should be the same as the upstream source repository name (so zmat) and the binary package name should be named after the SONAME of the library binary (so libzmat1).
Boyuan in an earlier message suggested to use libzmat instead of libzmat1. I've changed my control files on salsa
moving forward, to make these suggested changes, do I need to reupload the package to mentors?
