will try newer automake. Luckily older automake just ignores it, so I
can add it already. Let me explain why I was trying to avoid la files -
when using plugins, apps have to scan the folder for those and having la
files ther,e means longer scanning. Its more an issue on embedded and
there one can remove the la files as part of packaging.
