Exactly. An application can only be LSB-compliant by staticly linking all
libraries that are not part of LSB.
Installing dynamically shared libraries could otherwise lead to conflicts if
other versions of the same library are already present.
For KDE the LSB Desktop module is currently not too important. We just need to
ensure that it is possible (and easy) to create an LSB-compliant system that
can also run KDE (e.g. not dropping support for the compiler required by the
In the long term perspective, we should mainly try to push other libraries
that we depend on into the LSB Desktop module (freedesktop, etc), and
eventually even kdelibs once KDE4 has sufficiently matured.
