Well, they are all installed by the same ${LOCALBASE}/bin/libtool

	/bin/sh /opt/bin/libtool  --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c \ /opt/lib/

The script is installed by its port, which could patch it to ignore the .la 
files altogether -- keeping the maintaince of the rest of the ports just as 
simple and the filesystem slightly cleaner

There are 321 .la files on my system, for example. Do I need this junk?
