To summarize:

Alan: Both dynamic and static linking triggers the GPL infection.

That's utterly wrong.

Hyman: Only static linking triggers the GPL infection (in the case of
dynamic linking the GPL is irrelevant).

That's also wrong.

Right answer:

Neither static linking nor dynamic linking triggers the GPL infection.


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
