What it says: read the LGPL.  If you are dynamically linking you need do
nothing special as you are already providing your code in linkable form.
You also need not provide source for the library unless you are
distributing it in binary form with your package.  If you link statically,
though, you must include object files so that the user can relink your code
to a different version of the library if she wishes.

I don't know anything about that.
