Claws mail build fails because it can't find /lib/libgpg-error.la

I've spent a couple of days on and off chasing an annoying bug in Claws Mail:
I've got a hint of a fix from upstream, which I'm trying to build and test,
but unfortunately, there's a little bit of yak shaving first. The unchanged
Natty package does not build for me either locally in an sbuild, or in a PPA.
Claws was last built in the archive six weeks ago. Since then, libgpg-error
was rebuilt, and I think the linker changes landed. I don't know whether
either of those changes are related to the build failures in Claws, but it at
least seems related.
Note that there's a /usr/lib/libgpg-error.so file and a
/usr/lib/libgpg-error.la file, but no /lib/libgpg-error.la file. I haven't
yet been able to figure out why Claws' build wants to find it in /lib instead
I built the unstable version in a sid chroot just fine. I'm posting this
message to see if the build failure rings a bell with anybody.
