Re: Compiling programs licensed under the GPL version 2 with GCC 4.4
But if I change the run-time library, I still have to license those
changes under the GPLv3 if I want to distribute them, right?
Yes. But if you change the runtime library and link something else with
the modified runtime library, the "something else" does not fall
automatically under the GPLv3, even if you distribute them together.
The runtime library must be accompanied by the preferred form for
modification (source code), the "something else" can even be distributed
as a binary.
