Whoops, sorry for replying to myself but I just realized that you're
talking about a plugin, which is something that perhaps is "loaded via
libltdl in a way that requires that meta-information [in the .la file]".
In that case the .la is needed. I guess the best thing to do would be to
test if things work without the .la file...
