No I haven't.  In my latest build I have:

$ cd /mnt/lfs/
$ ls -l usr/lib/libstd*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2851280 Sep  2 01:40 usr/lib/libstdc++.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root     959 Sep  1 23:26 usr/lib/libstdc++.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      19 Sep  1 23:26 usr/lib/libstdc++.so -> 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      19 Sep  1 23:26 usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 -> 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1260202 Sep  2 01:40 usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.17

Once those files are there, I don't know of anything that would alter or 
remove them.

The only automake failure I have is due to not having python installed.

It might be an interesting experiment if you have a zero length .la file 
to just delete it and see if the error still occurs.

Personally I've never seen the purpose of libtool or .la files.
