I'm not an expert at all, so I might be wrong. I guess this would be
the case if your source package compiled a statically linked binary
against a library belonging to another source package. The licence of
the binary package would then be a combination of the licences of
boths the source files and the library.

Again, this is a wild guess, so can anyone confirm?
