Quoting the author:

[ Especially if you are using uClinux with LGPL library, if there is no Shared Library support with your system, that means you get hit by GPL/LGPL license issue because LGPL library can only be linked by Shared Library (dynamic link) or the application source code needs to be provided to the customer (if the customer wants).]

This is wrong: - LGPL has been created especially to allow open source code to be linked (statically or dynamically: it makes no difference) to proprietary code, without the LGPL constraints propagating to the proprietary code, contrarily to the GPL, which propagates.
