Hi Sandeep,

If you are shipping a system that makes no use of lt_dlopen, where the
user is never expected to build anything then there is no need to ship
.la files. If, on the other hand, you expect the user to compile
projects, or some parts of the system make use of lt_dlopen, I would
suggest using sed to modify the .la files after the root is complete.
