I can't give you the exact rationale, because I'm not sure precisely
what it is - something along the lines of "they're not neccessary on
Linux and cause more trouble than anything" - but we quite
deliberately don't ship the .la files with new libraries.

This shouldn't cause any issues - so you're going to need to explain
exactly what the problem you're seeing is.

(And apologies the bug has gone unattended so long)
Comment 2 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2004-09-23 15:07:06 EDT
Well, many things changed since that time:) IIRC at some point some
pkgconfig file contained the reference to that .la file - but it seems
now it is ok. So feel free to close the bug - if it happens again,
I'll reopen it:)
