You seem to miss that the license mkisofs is using is called "GPL" and not
"GPL FAQ", so the quoting you mention do not apply.

The FAQ is the legal interpretation of the GPL given by the FSF, who are the
folks who wrote the license, so why would you trust them less than Sun's
lawyers? And Eben Moglen, whom you misquoted as agreeing with your bizarre
position, was actually involved in writing both the GPL itself and the FAQ.

The GPL requires the entire work to be under GPL and the "entire work
mkisofs" _is_ of course under GPL.

The entire work includes any code which is linked into the same executable,
statically or dynamically. A program is not complete without its required
libraries, it doesn't work at all without them.

This thread is closed.

Do not comment on it anymore.

Your friendly neighborhood hall monitor.
