It's not OK to distribute but OK to depend on?

"The LGPL v2.1 is ineligible from being a Category B
license<http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#category-b>(a category
that includes the MPL, CPL, EPL, and CDDL) primarily due to the
restrictions it places on larger works, violating the third license
criterion <http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#criterion3>. Therefore,
LGPL v2.1-licensed works must not be included in Apache products, although
they may be listed as system
requirements<http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#options-systemrequirements>or
distributed elsewhere as optional
works <http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#options-optional>." from
www.apache.org/legal/3party.html

Can the above be read as follows for VFS and JCIFS: you cannot copy the
JCIFS jar into VFS (which we do not) but the VFS POM can point to it (which
we do).
