Slightly OFF: difference between lib.a

can someone explain me shortly the diferrence beetween libraries with the .a
.la and .so extensions. How do you create each one of them...

I have the following problem, on my distro (Mandrake 7.0 and 7.1), I have
the Mesa libraries but the libGL.a is missing. When I try to link with gcc
it answers me it "cannot find -lGL"

How do I create the libGL.a ?

Will gnome-db be used as a backend for evolution?
