In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * debian/*-dev.install: Don't install la-file (Policy 10.2)

libphash ships libtool la files in dev packages. They can simply be
removed since thay are not refered to from other packages.

See: http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals/LAFileRemoval

Thanks for considering the patch.
