Minor correction: it's the .a file, not the .la file (the latter is used
by libtool). The .a version of the library (which is actually an ar
archive) is the copy designed to be used for static linking, but not
every library will be installed with a static version available.
The best the OP can do is try to use -static to link his app and see
what happens; any missing .a archives will show up and link time and
solutions can be found for them.
