What about lib/*.la files?

Hi everyone!

GNU libtool is producing *.la files, and these are sometimes installed under
the lib hirarchy. It is a text file with some information about the
libraries installed.

I know of at least one case where the configure script checks for this file
(gtk-- is checking for gtk libs). It is ok to install such a file, should
those be recommended or forced, are they completely useless? Is there some
other way to handle this than changing the autoconf script?

Ideas are appreciated,
thank you,
