No, this is the result of enabling a few functionality in liblalgtk. We did it
like that because we needed one file in the -doc packages.
In the future we are going to properly split the packages, and there should be
no problem, but as this will require NEW processing, and human ftp-master
intervention, we delayed this change in favor of a quick upload which fixed
the -doc issue first.
