yes, you cannot link statically LGPL code, it will be 'infected' with GPL.
IANAL either. But hey, that's one of the points in getting involved in KDE for 
TTs. They can use KDEs bits and pieces and their customers can.
Some add one point to the licence - allowing TTs using the code with 
proprietary software (as far as I remember some stuff in PIM does).
