Odd. Normally I would expect it to look in the locations that are
set through /etc/ld.so.conf{,.d}

Seems like a workaround for an actual bug to me. Also, on Debian s390x,
the directory for shared libraries is also /usr/lib/s390x-linux-gnu:

glaubitz at zelenka:~$ ls -dl /usr/lib/s390x-linux-gnu
drwxr-xr-x 29 root root 28672 Dec 18 08:20 /usr/lib/s390x-linux-gnu
glaubitz at zelenka:~$

And I'm quite sure we don't have a quirk in the Debian openjdk package
in the form of a patch. So, I'm not sure why the configure doesn't work
in your case.
