Could be, but afaik missing .la items haven't caused runtime problems afaik (as long as symbols are otherwise resolvable), but that would change when/if rpm's automatic .la file dependencies were ever used.

So, yeah, still a good general idea (per guidelines) to avoid the hassle whenever possible.
