While these libtool helper files may be useful on some Un*x systems, they
are not particularly useful on GNU/Linux systems and may in fact complicate
library transitions.

Please drop this .la files from this package. It should be safe to do so
as there are no other -dev packages that declare a dependency on this one.
Removing this .la files will bring me one step closer to being able to drop
/usr/lib/libgsf-la.la in turn.
