*.lai files are generated by libtool (the plain libtool, not the bl3
wrapper).  They are the actual libtool archive files copied by libtool
as *.la during the installation process.  From the above error, it
sounds like the libaudio_esd.lai file was accidentally removed or not
generated at some point.
