I don't see anything wrong in the libusb la file.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-05-11 13:03:41 UTC
Packaging Guidelines recommend exclusion of %{_libdir}/lib*.la files. 
Re-opening.  Please reconsider for future FC releases (ie, fc6+).

Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2006-06-01 11:25:36 UTC
The .la files are now removed.
