I don't know who you talked to - what ASF project are you working
with? Who did you talk to?

Per http://people.apache.org/~cliffs/3party.html (see Category B), the
ASF only allows CPL-licensed works to be used in binary form for our
projects - so linking against a CPL-licensed work is fine and we don't
consider linking to create a derivative work.  -- justin
