I don't see anything bad with libkpathsea.la, the only .la file shipped with the
teTeX package.
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-08 04:34:02 EST
This may require fixing on libtool side instead of removing la files from every
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-08 09:40:40 EST
On second thought it's better to see it removed from teTeX.
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-09 06:26:54 EST
Removed since tetex-3.0-9
