Thanks for the replies!

How does this work practically, then?  Do I have to distribute the
source code to every library I link to?  I understand there is an
exception for system libraries (i.e. libstdc++ and the like), but
where do I draw the line?  For example is cairo or freetype considered
a 'system' library, or would I need to redistribute their source as
well?  Is a link to their webpage sufficient?

Thanks again for your help,
