GPL code which states "May be linked with libfpx" is OK I suppose? I will
probably write a viewer that uses this, and I'd like to use GPL anyway if
possible (due to the incompatibility it would not be possible to extend an
existing GPLed viewer).

This brings up something else: if I'm correct, I wouldn't have to mention the
use of libfpx if I would use some license that is compatible; however, if I
do use GPL and put the linking statement there, is that enough to have to
comply to the 4th clause in the license?
