LGPL works can be system dependencies according to the referenced  
draft policy:

The LGPL v2.1 is ineligible from being a Category B license (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. Therefore, LGPL v2.1-licensed works must not be  
included in Apache products, although they may be listed as system  
requirements or distributed elsewhere as optional works.
