Because some other *.la file referenced it.  That in turn is likely so
because at the time, that other *.la file was created the missing file
was present on the system building the package.  libtool assumes that
such refereced files are needed, and subsequently requires their
presence even for libraries only indirectly linking to them.

Hope that helps.
