I think I read on -dev that .la files were being removed.  It seems to 
have been causing trouble when packages were being updating that were 
linked against each other.  So, they made things so that they would work 
without them and removed them.

That is oversimplified since it was a while back but I think that is 
normal nowadays.  Someone correct me if I am wrong on this.
