Package: libppl-swi
Version: 0.11.2-3
Severity: normal
User: codehelp@debian.org
Usertags: la-file-removal

To finish an old release goal from Squeeze, to comply with Policy
10.2 and to ease the introduction of MultiArch, I'm filing bugs
against packages which contain .la files which can be either removed
or stripped of the dependency_libs variable.




Data has been obtained from the output of an automated script:


The output is best read in conjunction with the criteria from this
post to debian-devel:


To generate the list of packages, I've used:

grep -v depended-on current.txt |cut -d: -f1

The data is regularly updated but please accept my apologies if you
have made an upload which changes the situation since the data was

libppl-swi (0.11.2-3) appears in this list as a source package
because one or more of the binary packages (usually -dev packages)
contain .la files.

In this case, the .la file is in libppl-swi:


# Libraries that this one depends upon.
dependency_libs=' /usr/lib/libppl.la -L/usr/lib /usr/lib/libpwl.la /usr/lib/libgmpxx.la /usr/lib/libgmp.la'

In most cases, the .la file(s) can simply be removed as the process
behind this MBF has already identified that there are no further
dependencies using the .la file. In the unusual case that your
package uses libltdl directly, it is still necessary to empty the
dependency_libs part of all .la files remaining in the package.

If you believe that your package needs both the .la file and the
dependency_libs settings, please raise this on debian-devel for
