unfortunately Sphinx doesn't make it very clear but it's released under
"either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later
version." (as you can read in doc/Sphinx.html under 1.4 License) so you
can just apply the terms of GPLv3 and you should be fine even if it
required linking somewhere.
