KDE doesn't need static library, and don't use static library when a dynamic 
library is available. And .la isn't a static library, but a libtool archive 
which is needed by libtool to properly link. In KDE4/KOffice2, libtool isn't 
used and therfore the problem has been "fixed", but for KDE3/KOffice 1.x, the 
only solution is to use the liblcms.la file (which in itself doesn't cause a 
security maitenance).
