Bug#522623: lintian: false positive incorrect-libdir-in-la-file when using python-central

Package: lintian
Version: 2.2.9
Severity: important

When using python-central to handle Python packages potentially targeted
for multiple Python versions, library files are moved to a central
location and replaced with symlinks at install time.

Lintian complains with the following:

E: python-sugar-toolkit-0.84: incorrect-libdir-in-la-file usr/share/pyshared/sugar/_sugarext.la /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/sugar != /usr/share/pyshared/sugar

I believe that error is wrong, as python-central adds symlinks at
install time which makes the .la file paths work properly at runtime -
even if they are missing in the package itself.

Setting severity as important, as ftpmasters reject packages based on
this lintian judgement (i.e. sugar-toolkit on april 1st).
