According to this list

a) the la-files can be removed from libgphoto2-2-dev (no other la
them in dependency libs)
b) libgphoto2-2-dev is currently broken[1], because at least one of the
libraries we are listing in dependency_libs has dropped its la file
(instead of cleaning dependency_libs).

I have taken the liberty of pushing a fix in GIT.
