No, you should not have a libXxf86dga.so. libXxf86dga is only built
static by default for a resaon. It is the distros that ship a shared
version that are broken.
However if you need to run such broken binaries I'm told that the
following will make a .so file from the .a file:
ld --whole-archive -shared -o libXxf86dga.so libXxf86dga.a
