Note that we have the same problem with any package which does static
linking against an lgpl library (such as glibc).

This is (one of the big reasons) why we only permit static linking with
explicit approval from FESCo.


Still we do allow it for certain packages and every such package has the
potential LGPL problem Notting described. I personally think it would
be a good idea to include root.log inside the srpm of packages, this
way people can truely use their GPL rights and exactly re-create the
package by using all the same packages in a chroot as used during the
original build.
