For more info about accepted licenses:
http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#criteriaandcategories
IOW, you can link to any A and B licensed software without any problem.
A particular case is LGPL. The license allows you to link to a
LGPL-licensed software, however you cannot redistribute it in an
Apache Licensed package.
