Description Bertrand Jacquin 2015-03-12 10:27:44 UTC
media-libs/libggi-2.2.2 install a few .la files with the following content for on  amd64:

$ cat /usr/lib64/ggi/display/
dependency_libs=' -L/usr/lib -L/usr/lib64 -lggi -laa -lm -lncurses -lXxf86vm -lgii -lgg -lX11 -lXxf86dga -lXext -ldl -lpthread -lc'

/usr/lib should not be there

This leads to issue as in #542612 and #542622

Should not we drop that .la files ?

Reproducible: Always
