That seems weird to me. We started some efforts to get rid of .la
files altogether. They are already useless and actively harmful in
-dev packages, but having them in the library packages sounds like
working around a bug in the kdelibs dynaloader, than being a proper
bug fix. It is the only package I ever heard about where this action
is taken.

Can you please give some details why the .la file is necessary here?
