AGAIN (and citing [1]): Sentence was written under the assumption that
all .la files will be shipped.

When .la will not be shipped they do not need to be in main packages
(nor in -devel ones) because they are not shipped.

Dunno. But we can save these few milliseconds without any costs by
removing the .la files.
