Just a word on the rationale: packages referencing a .la from another
package should IMO depend on it, so before removing any *.la, I checked
all rdepends of the packages I was removing from and checked all *.la
files in these rdeps for references to the to be removed *.la files.
It's perhaps a bit hard for packages which were missing *.la files
depends, but at least we got rid of some *.la files now.

Apart of libgoffice, which seems to be an old version, I think the *.la
you mention are shipped by mistake and cause no harm.

Thanks for checking this! Perhaps in some cases a bug requesting the
complete removal of these *.la from the packages would be better, but
requesting bin NMUs looks like a good first step.
