Actually, this is a known bug and affects many KDE apps.  Currently, you'll have
to include the .la files.  

>From the fedora page: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines under
the heading "Exclusion of Static Libraries" you'll see the comment: "[Comment
from mschwendt: It is not that easy, unfortunately, to kill libtool dependency
bloat this way. Some software needs libtool archives at run-time because it uses
an old libltdl to dlopen DSOs or uses a broken libltdl (like KDE bug #93359).]"
