No - but either way Impala is probably in the clear.

The resulting binary is an issue if:

- You use statically linked libraries (e.g. they get embedded in the binary)
- You do provide a distribution style binary that includes them in the
package (e.g. a rpm or deb or tar or zip)

As an example, ActiveMQ Artemis depends on an optional extension for
libaio.  libaio is LGPL licensed.  This binary is OK because it is
optional, the user has to do something to enable it.  But do note they ship
it as a convenience.
