right, and in this case, the resulting binary cannot be distributed
under these conditions.

the interesting part of the LGPL license:

   "As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine 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."

which are acceptable conditions in this case.
