Re: Fun with libtool and cross-builds

Isn't a much simpler solution just to get rid of .la files for platforms
where they're useless?  They're not needed for dynamic linking and
Debian doesn't really support static linking well, and if you do need
static linking, you can just use pkg-config which more and more libs
support those days.
