Re: libtool bites us again (aka Libtool's Revenge, part II)

 	  Packages that use libtool to create shared libraries must
 	  include the <em>.la</em> files in the <em>-dev</em>
+	  packages, if it includes them at all. Dynamically loadable
+	  modules that are created with libtool should not include
+	  the .la file at all, since it is not needed.
-	  packages, with the exception that if the package relies on
-	  libtool's <em>libltdl</em> library, in which case the .la
-	  files must go in the run-time library package.  This is a
-	  good idea in general, and especially for static linking
-	  issues.
