KDE bug? Re: RFC: "Include .la files" rule for packages - revisited

Well, kdelibs src.rpm reveals that a copy of GNU libltdl is included,
but configured and compiled to not support .so file extensions for
shared libraries:

  checking which extension is used for shared libraries... 

That doesn't look intentional, because the corresponding part of
the configure script runs sed on unexpanded variables,

  $libname${shared_ext}

and therefore results in an empty string instead of ".so". Then,
of course, it's no surprise that .so files are no even searched for.
