Note:  This says that it is covered by the GNU LGPL, not the GNU GPL.

And the relevant chunk of the LGPL _may_ be:

     6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also compile or
     link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
     work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
-->  under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
     modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
     engineering for debugging such modifications.

Cheers, Phil.
