It's a workaround, or at least I'd call it so, tho workaround/fix is 
quibbling over technicalities, the simple fact is that it works, 
regardless.

The "fix", in progress gentoo-wide, is to remove pretty much all the *.la 
files entirely.  But unless all packages are remerged at the same time, 
that must be done in some particular order or still-installed *.la files 
will refer to others already removed, thus triggering threads such as this.

FWIW, I've been using a PKG_INSTALL_MASK="*.la" setting here in my 
make.conf for some time, now.  That keeps portage from installing the 
files entirely.  With a single exception for one such file installed by 
the libtool package itself, tested for by certain other package config 
steps, it has been without issue.  

In /etc/portage/env/sys-devel/libtool, I have this exception, so that 
single package installs its *.la files, but that's it.

PKG_INSTALL_MASK=

When I first set the mask, I did an emerge --empty-tree @world, thus 
removing all *.la files.  The only problem I ran into was the missing *la 
from libtool itself, which remerging it with the above exception worked 
around, and I've been *.la file problem free since then. =:^)

Of course, individual users may have other exception packages as well, but 
the above single exception works with the packages I have merged, 
including most of kde4.
