Cairo-directfb package

I am trying to use the cairo-directfb package (and the -dev version). It 
works fine with a manually-made Makefile. But when I try to use libtool 
it never works. I tried all sorts of settings to libtool (so I can use 
kdevelop to debug my thing) but so far no luck. I tried -static to link 
everything statically, but then the GTK-directfb packages don't provide 
.a versions of the libs. And when I force -R, -L and -rpath to make sure 
it knows about /usr/lib/libcairo-directfb/lib it fails because it's 
still using the from /usr/lib.

Is the cairo-directfb missing a .la in /usr/lib/libcairo-directfb/lib ?
Or gtk-directfb the .a versions of the libs ?
Or libtool has issues using libs in other places than /usr/lib ?

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.
