Well, it seems that you are uninfored....

If you like to tell me that mkisofs cannot link against libschily because it is
CDDL, mkisofs could not link against GNU libc either because it is LGPL.

If you believe that GNU libc and mkisofs both together create a derived work, 
you would need to use the option from the LGPL to tranform the code into GPL.

.....then you would never be able to have X on a Linux platform again as the 
conversion from LGPL to GPL is irreversible and valid for the master copy of 
a Distributor.
