It is that "permit linking proprietary applications" phrase which is the rub.
It doesn't mention static or dynamic, so one must assume both.

No. It does not matter what the GPL or the LGPL says unless
there is a reason that the license should apply. When a program
is linked dynamically against a library and is copied and
distributed without that library, then the copyright license of
the library is irrelevant because the library is not being copied
and distributed.

That is, when copying and distributing a program, the first thing
to determine is which licenses apply. Only after that do you need
to worry about what those licenses say.
