[Gnash-dev] library `/usr/lib/

libtool dies in gnash/backend with:
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/' or unhandled 
argument `/usr/lib/'

To the best of my knowledge, the .la file should be used with some care, 
because it can be done badly.

Aditionally,this specific file ( no longer shipped in Debian 
(at least in Sid).


4) Not actually tied to the Xorg transition, but overlapping it, the
libxrender-dev and libxcursor-dev packages have stopped shipping their
libtool .la files.  This is a reasonable change to make since these packages
ship pkg-config .pc files that can be used to query all the needed
information much more effectively, but it means all -dev packages for all
libraries that transitively depend on libxcursor or libxrender have to be
rebuilt to know about this removal (which is part of what makes removing
them a good idea!).  These rebuilds are in process, with binNMUs where
possible, but a number of these packages are unfortunately not binNMU-safe,
or require sourceful updates because...

I assume we need libxcursor for something. Maybe I'm not seeing an obvious 
workaround. Has anyone else run into this partcular issue?
