GPL: If your program links to GPL code, you must provide source to the whole
thing so that other people can edit any part and recompile it.
LGPL: If your program links to LGPL code, you must provide unlinked binaries
and linking instructions for the whole thing so that other people can edit
the LGPL code and relink it. Distributing the source of any non-LGPL
portions is optional.
