This (and the similar thread for debian errors) is most likely the
result of you having a package that installs a .la that references the
above .la, but the devel package for asound doesn't install it.

Your packager has two fixes to choose from:  install libasound.la in
asound-devel, or don't install the .la that is referencing it.  You'll
need a fixed package from your distributor, unless you want to go
through your libdir and manually delete the offending .la.

I don't know if there are suse9 packages for libgda or gnomedb.  You
might want to check gnome-db.org.
