Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The dependency_libs field in the .la file has not been cleared. It has long been a release goal to get rid of unneeded .la files and clearing the dependency_libs field from the rest of them.

A non-empty dependency_libs field will also stall the Multi-Arch conversion.

The .la file in itself may be useful if the library is loaded dynamically via libltdl.

Please refer to,, and for details.
