Hi,   do I get that all right, the .la files can be ommited?  So when
building a fresh install, removing all and any .la would solve problems
about missing .la files?  In other words, as long as there is "not a
single one" .la file present, there will be no issue?

Currently i tried to build lightdm - and it fails as libgobject-blah.la 
is not present.

Whats the "standard" way to get around those issues?
