Just for me to learn something: which clause of the GPL is this?  I
did not find the concept of the source code being useful together with
one thing or another in the GPL.

Is the theory behind this, that the modified source code together with
the GPL-incompatible library (The library source? Or the compiled
library?) forms a "modified work" (in the sense of clause 2)?

All the best,
