Unfortunately, that means that one or more of the devel packages you
installed is broken.  Your esd-devel package didn't ship that .la file
but one of the devel packages higher in the dependency chain shipped a
.la that depends on it.

As to your followup question, a .a is very different from a .la.  .la is
a file used by libtool, .a is a static version of the library.  You need
to fix the .la dependency, either by providing the .la's that are
missing in the lower end of the chain, or removing the .la's that are
referencing the missing .la.

Or you can file a bug against the packager for your devel packages and
ask them to fix their broken packages.
