yeah, that is what buildlinking does: creates symlinks of the *.so files and
creates "faked" *.la files from the original ones

mmh, never saw that message by myself ....
the problem i saw was that the original .la file didn't exist and the
buildlink process created a .la file with no content (so that the build
process failed with 'blah is not a valid libtool archive', too)
