Not necessarily. Non-derivative (under copyright law, not GNU copyleft 
FAQ "semantics of the communication are intimate enough", etc. 
silliness) computer program works included in the DLL don't have to be 
licensed under the GPL. And DLL compilation work (i.e. aggregation of 
all DLL's components) also doesn't have to be licensed under the GPL as 
long as it is not a derivative work of some preexisting compilation 
under the GPL.
