I would add, that if there are no rdeps yet of this library and the package
ships a pkg-config file, I wouldn't install the *.la file at all.

Please note here, that you need to "fix" the *.so symlink if you build with
--prefix=/usr and move the libfoo.so.* files to /lib, as the libfoo.so symlink
will point to the libfoo.so.* file in the same directory.
