Ahh, the difficult realms of LGPL.  There is no definitive answer
here.

If you read the LGPL you will notice that the language is very
focussed on languages with an explicit linking semantic (like C) and
that much of it doesn't really apply to Java.

In fact, some people (of the FSF) have indicated that the LGPL would
be equivalent to the GPL when it comes to Java - sorry, no references
here.
