The .la file should be installed since users of libzmq which build using
libtool will benefit from it, at least in the case where libzmq is built
with OpenPGM and thus depends on its dependencies.

However, you're right that absolute paths should not go in the .la file. I
don't see this problem here, could you be more specific about what version
of 0MQ you're using, what your exact platform is and how you obtained and
built 0MQ?

Also if you could attach the offending .la file that might help.
