Note that you've quoted "clarification [which] is given on the official
GNU website".

It reflects the state of affairs regarding linking somehow creating
derivative works in the GNU Republic, not this reality. 

You can safely ignore such utter nonsense outside the jurisdiction of
the GNU Republic.


(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.)
