This is not an issue at all. Except in the GNU Republic. In reality,
linking as such (especially dynamic one) is totally irrelevant 
regarding (software) copyright. Ignore that utterly moronic GPL FAQ.

Your options are:

1. Don't distribute the GPL'd stuff and let the users acquire it 

  users have all the rights to use and even adapt (create private
  derivatives) of lawfully acquired stuff without "accepting" the 
  GPL per 17 USC 117;

2. include it in your distribution package:

  apart from "additional copies" distributed per 17 USC 117 it 
  even falls under GPL's own "mere aggregation" clause.
