remove ancient libEGL.la dependency

Exact version number of Audacity: Audacity 2.3.0 alpha git
Operating system version: Linux
Brief description of the problem: build fails with built with a modern meson build of mesa git--due to missing libEGL.la.
Detailed, step by step instructions for how to reproduce the problem: Compile mesa git with meson/ninja. Then attempt to compile audacity from git.

From https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105567 :

"No sane project should depend on the .la files - that's why distros/packaging tools remove them by default."

".la files are generated by libtool, meson doesn't use libtool so there will be no .la files. It's not a bug, it's actually a feature. As Emil said, projects should not be dependent on .la files, that's bad behavior."

Where does the build failure occur? During the build of wxGTK?
