Hummm,  I think you are not missing anything, and most probably

reasonable.  I think the niether Arabeyes, nor PuTTY people
really checked it on fsf.org.  The scenario was that I said
"FriBidi is LGPLed, you can dynamically link to it, like xterm
does."  And people said "No, we want putty.exe to be standalone,
so FriBidi is not an option."

Thanks for the note Shachar,

They can't put the sources for fribidi inside their sources, or they must clearly label it as a bunch of sources under a different license. I don't see any problem with statically linking a library, though.
